Terms for embalmers: The roles of a Funeral Director and an embalmer are different. A funeral director is a person who arranges for the final disposition of the deceased and who may or may not prepare (including embalming) the deceased for viewing (or other legal requirements). An embalmer is someone who has been trained in the art and science of embalming and may not have any contact with the family, although many people fill both roles. The term mortician is becoming out-dated, but may refer either to a funeral director or to an embalmer, or both. Embalming training commonly involves formal study in anatomy, thanatology, chemistry, and specific embalming theory (to widely varying levels depending on the region of the world one lives in) combined with practical instruction in a mortuary with a resultant formal qualification granted after the passing of a final practical examination and acceptance into a recognized society of professional embalmers.
Another realistic and creepy kind of post, I am just trying to grab your attention to real stuff that happens, every day. I have/had a sick sense of humor in my life and it makes this design fit deeply into my dark side, maybe you agree. If you think about it too much, you might want one... feeling the need to CLICK HERE!
THANK YOU for letting me share my works and designs this week, hopefully you were encouraged to step outside your safe circle... your perfect circle!
Embalming with an image from Bambi - you have a great sense of humor, Jeremy!!ReplyDelete
Nice. I thought you were going to talk about taxidermy with that bambi pic on top.ReplyDelete
Cruel take on Bambi. Actually did you know that equal sugar substitute reacts with the liver to embalm the living. Truth! Diabetics were found to be partially embalmed upon their deaths.ReplyDelete
the president of my country was once a director of a funeral company.... believe it or not... no wonder he buried us all six feet under.....ReplyDelete
That's wild Jeremy. It actually reminds me of this week's chilling episode of Arrow.ReplyDelete
Poor Bambi has more problems. I like the color combo for your tee shirts--very eye-catching. I'm going to have to look through your stock.ReplyDelete

The ancient Egyptians scrambled the brains of those they embalmed -- weird facts. Bambi's friends are going to get you now! :-_)ReplyDelete
I learn something new everyday, and you've just helped me in achieving this today! Now just remember your presence is required on November 24th at the cave....along with your sense of humor. :)ReplyDelete
