This is going to sound weird.
And it is.
A long time ago, in a place a miles away, a pretty girl told me that humans (and indeed most meat) is actually naturally green. Our blood is red, obviously, but if you took a chunk from someone it would be green, then change to red over time or with treatment.
I thought she was wrong.
Then I read Stephen King’s On Writing a few years ago, and he mentioned his mother describing a jumper to him, and referred to the colour green.
I saw a picture of a snake bite the other day, and the deepest part of the wound was a greenish colour. Had the previous two incidences not occurred, I would have written it off as infection.
So, what is the Straightdope?
