Tours We'd Rather Not Take

Officials at LBJ Hospital are giving tours of a giant asshole.

Officially called "The Colossal Colon," the "8-foot-tall, 20-foot-long colon is designed to help hospital guests learn about colorectal disease," according to the Texas Medical Center.

Other names for the giant colon include "Dallas Cowboy Fan," "My Ex-Husband" and "That Cop With The Radar Gun."
