Pro Tip: Don’t Take Selfies With Cadavers, Because Of That Whole “Human Decency” Thing

By: Claire Hannum / February 7, 2014

Let’s clear this up right now: taking selfies with dead folks is not an encouraged activity. However, this wasn’t so obvious to a high school student on a field trip to the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Anatomical Donor Program, who took the WORST SELFIE EVER with a cadaver in the lab. Her smiling photo next to the body was uploaded to Instagram, and — surprise! — school officials were not pleased. The photo revealed the cadaver’s face, which is supposed to remain covered in the lab; phones aren’t allowed in there either, by the way. The distasteful image has since been taken off Instagram, and it’s unclear yet whether any punishment was given for the picture. Either way, we’re in despair over  this future generation and the dumb things they do on social media. [ABC News] [Image of a cadaver via Shuttershock]
