Grossology: As seen on TV.
  • Grossology: As seen on TV.
Okay, so this isn't exactly breaking news. The "Grossology" exhibit at the Saint Louis Science Center has been up since mid-October and was extended in January to run through March.

Still, it was news to me when I saw the following commercial air this weekend during Saturday Night Live.

At first I thought perhaps I was witnessing one of SNL's fake ads. Turns out I wasn't...

Here are some other features of Grossology, as advertised on the science center's website:
  • Visit the Vomit Center and learn the many reasons humans vomit
  • Stop by the Toot Toot exhibit to create different sounds that replicate the physics of gas
  • Find out what causes runny noses, sneezes and allergies with Nigel Nose-it-All
  • Crawl and slide through a 3-D model of the digestive system
