April 17, 2008, Washington, D.C. – The National Museum of Health and Medicine of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (NMHM) will commemorate National Hairball Awareness Day on Sunday, April 27, 2008 at 1:00 p.m., with a special presentation and hands-on activity for the general public. Visitors will learn why hairballs develop in the stomach and will have an opportunity to handle an actual hairball. The Museum is located on the campus of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
Why would anybody want to handle an actual hairball? Should I be inviting people over when my two "hairball machines" do their thing? *shudders*
