Gross Out 

Man ... what a piece of work is man. What a stinky, crusty, slimy, oozy, scaly, downright icky, and absolutely amazing piece of work. This is the takeaway lesson from "Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body," a touring exhibit based on the best-selling book Grossology, featuring sophisticated animatronics and numerous opportunities to experience the science behind snot, poop, pee, burps, farts, and various body odors.

Carrie Roberts, directer of public relations for the Children's Museum of Memphis, doesn't hesitate when asked to describe the grossest part of "Grossology." "We have something called a 'smelling station,'" she says. "You can open a box and smell different body odors. And you can learn what is happening in your nose, too — how snot works and how boogers form.

"Also, we have something called a 'vomit station,'" Roberts adds.

The big question, of course, is what kind of contingency plan CMOM has for sympathetic vomiters who upchuck at the sight or smell of upchuck.

"Hopefully, that won't happen," Roberts says.

"Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body," at the Children's Museum of Memphis, September 14th-January 5th. The exhibit is included with regular admission. CMOM.com
