    First-year students at Texas A&M Vet school were attending their first anatomy
    class, with a dead cow, as the lesson for the day. 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 body".
    For an example, the Professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of
    the dead cow, withdrew it and stuck his finger in his mouth. "Go ahead and do the
    same thing," he told his students. 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.."
