The downtown Portland Marriott hotel was recently the site of an autopsy. The event, billed under the Oddities & Curiosities Expo, was sponsored by a media company called Death Science, Portland’s KGW8 reports. Attendees could purchase admission for $250, or $500 for “VIP” access.

As a performer myself, I think I would be OK with this, if you want to dissect my body. But Marriott? Come on, I could go a little better, maybe Four Seasons.

It would be my final performance.

But, hopefully, I’m worth a little more money. I’d like to see the secondary market go a little higher on those tickets, like $1,500. I want people out front scalping, you know?

“Well, yeah, if they were at the Ritz Carlton maybe, and then they had a very special room and better lighting and nicer seats. And maybe it’d be like the chef’s table where you could sit way up front,” KIRO’s Cheri Trusler chimed in.

Sure, make it a show. Give me the guy flipping pieces of my organs up into his chef’s hat.

Again, if that were me, that’s what I want. I want the comedy, I want the sadness, and I want one of my organs turned into a volcano and set on fire like they do up at Benihana.
