Bishops of Durham's Rectum on Display in London!

Just heard on NPR that the Bishop of Durham's rectum is on display at a London Museum - I can't wait to get to the bottom of this and see the long-dead bishop's rear end, a low light perhaps of the whole London museum offerings.

Not the one who is presently a professor of Theology at Durham, I trust? One never knows what the clergy will get up to these days.

Goodness, I knew Jeremy Bentham's corpse still hangs out at UCL, but not that a Bishop's rectum was also on display in London.
