The Dead Cow Lecture

First-year students at the Purdue Vet School were attending their first
anatomy class with a real dead cow. They all gathered around the surgery
table with the body covered with a white sheet. The professor started the
class by telling them, “In Veterinary medicine it is necessary to have two
important qualities as a doctor. The first is that you not be disgusted by
anything involving the animal’s body.” For an example, the professor pulled
back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the cow, withdrew it, and
stuck his finger in his mouth. “Go ahead and do the same thing,” he told his

The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes, but eventually
took turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead cow and sucking on it.

When everyone finished, the Professor looked at them and said,………
“The second most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle
finger and sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention. Life’s
tough but it’s even tougher if you’re stupid.”
