We have no doubt that the educational and awareness benefits are numerous. But so are the reasons to snicker. Ladies and gentleman, the eight-foot tall, 20-foot long Super Colon will be on display this Friday and Saturday at River Park Square. According to a Providence press release, the inflatable, tube-like organ "teaches people not only about the risks and symptoms of colorectal cancer, but that it is preventable, treatable and beatable!"
Seems like a perfect opportunity for a photo op, right? Send pictures of you and the Super Colon to joels [at] inlander [dot] com.
