Undertakers Kenneth McKenzie and Todd Harra provided this artwork depicting one of the stories featured in their book, Mortuary Confidential. According to the account, an undertaker new to the neighborhood receives a bereavement turkey on Thanksgiving from a helpful neighbor who thinks there has been a death at the house.

Much to the neighbor's chagrin, the undertaker informs her that she is on call, hence the hearse in front of the house.

Lamp Runs on Human Blood

What if, every time you needed to turn on a light, you had to sacrifice a part of yourself? That's the question proposed by designer Mike Thomspon with his Blood Lamp. To operate it, a user breaks the top off, mixes in an activating powder, cuts his or her finger with the broken glass, then puts in a few drops of blood.
