Things that make you go “Ewww”: Madonna’s Arms
In my previous life, I took of an anatomy class or two, as well as a class called ”Human Skeletal Identification” (Hey if you want to know the age range of skeletal remains based on on the pubis symphysis, I’m your gal).
Naturally, I became fascinated by this photo of Madonna, sporting her freakishly developed arms. There are going to be glut of anatomy students who are going to get to cheat by having a model of Madonnna in their midst!
I can tell you that after careful excavation, no cadaver I’ve seen exhibits upper arm musculature as clearly as Madonna. I have yet to be privy to a clear representation of the Biceps Brachii, the Brachioradialis, or the Flexor Carpi Radialis, yet here they are, in all their ( living?) glory. This photo even rivals the cadavers I saw in the BODIES exhibit last summer.
Plastic full body muscle models run several thousand dollars, but now they can just have Madonna stand in their class for free. She can solve the budget crisis on campus!
