Dirty Smurfs

A key component to fake bodily fluids is coloring.  When one simulates the explosion of the spleen or blood in stool accuracy is a must.  Not really, but I still strive for such things.  Sadly my current project requires visibility so I’ve been adding a rather strong blue dye which tends to get everywhere.  I returned to my desk with hands looking like I was some sort of smurf trauma surgeon.  My coworkers had other ideas to explain the coloration:

  • Smurf gigalo
  • Canning accident
  • Blue man group proctologist
  • Most Accurately: Inability to properly wear nitrile gloves
