You may not be able to handle this. H/T Today I Learned.

So over at the New York Post they've done an interview with medical examiner Judy Melinek, the author of Working Stiff.

It's the story of her life working as a forensic pathologist in New York City.

to the blurb: "Working Stiff chronicles Judy's two years of training, taking readers behind the police tape of some of the most harrowing deaths in the Big Apple, including a first-hand account of the events of September 11, the subsequent anthrax bio-terrorism attack, and the disastrous crash of American Airlines flight 587."

The entire interview is incredible and horrifying.

Not to spoil it but the story of the man who fell down a manhole is one of the worst things you'll see this month, as are the bits about the egg roll machine and the subway jumper at Union Square.

But we really need to talk about the last quote. Especially those of us that like cats and dogs. Are you ready?

Proof, as if it were needed, that cats are jerks.
