    Hunter successfully identified the tumor through rectal examination…in 1791.

    I’m more curious about HOW than the actual exhibit.

      “Hunter wrote extensive notes about how he entered the case, examined the rectum (which at the time was, of course, still an integral part of the bishop), and immediately recognised, by feel, that it had an incurable tumour.”

    From the depths of the crypt at St Giles
    Came a scream that resounded for miles.
    Said the vicar, “Good gracious!
    Has Father Ignatius
    Forgotten the Bishop has piles?”

    I clicked on the title link expecting to see some quaint Anglicism about church construction.

    I love Boing Boing and I read it almost every day. But why is every other story so engrossing, monstrous or something the like? Am I the only one to think like that?

    So glad the rector was able to save this for posterity.
