Museum of Urology reopens, weary world rejoices

The William P. Didusch Museum of the American Urological Association, on North Charles St. in Baltimore, MD, has reopened after a four-year-long renovation.

The museum's two large rooms feature an uncomfortably vast assortment of impossibly long and spiky metal probes, used to get backed-up urine flowing around bladder stones, kidney stones, prostate disease, and other afflictions.

The museum also displays a kidney stone the size of a woman's fist.
