A medical misunderstanding

Not too many laughs in the medical journals as a rule, but I enjoyed this from the BMJ for 17 December, p.1456. Sathesha Nayak, an anatomy lecturer at a medical college in Manipal, India, told the students to make an incision, cut the skin and throw it upwards, and then find the structures beneath. A little later he heard a commotion at one of the dissecting tables, and found that one of the students had indeed cut the skin and thrown it up in the air, and it had fallen on another student's head.
