Eatlemania Hits the Airwaves!

We are so excited to announce that you can now watch The Eatles munching the night away in real time at the Organ Laboratory YouTube Channel.

Immediately you will notice three "dishes" they are feasting on (from closest to farthest from camera):

1) Thanksgiving turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) remains from my mother in law's kitchen! In our family, thanksgiving is a time for sharing with family and friends and beetles. In keeping with the outreach spirit, our colleague at IU School of Medicine, Dr. Bill Sullivan, recently wrote about some interesting turkey facts at The 'Scope. Enjoy.

Winner Winner Turkey Dinner
2) "St. Louis style" spare pork (Sus scrofa) ribs from City BBQ. As a big fan of barbecue, I was surprised to learn that "St. Louis style" ribs has nothing to do with being coated in sticky barbecue sauce, and everything to do with the actual cut of meat. "St. Louis style" ribs are the spare ribs and are usually meatier and have higher fat content that baby back ribs (or loin ribs). The more you know...

I want my baby back, baby back, baby back spare ribs.

3) Amber the hedgehog, who is slowly but surely being cleaned for us by The Eatles.

We hope you enjoy watching!
