Who knew ISIS had a satellite campus in Connecticut?

In a rather gruesome stab at humor, an orthodontics professor and “several” students at Yale University have been popped by school officials after a selfie of the prof and students supposedly posing with two severed heads came to the officials attention.

As reported by Britain’s The Daily Mail;

The selfie, which was taken in June at the Yale School of Medicine during a training workshop, has been described by Yale officials as ‘disturbing’ and ‘inexcusable’.

Dr Flavio Uribe was one of the people in the photo. He is a top University of Connecticut orthodontics professor and a visiting associate professor at the Yale School of Medicine.

In the photo, Uribe and several graduate students are looking at the camera, while others continue to work. All are wearing surgical masks and the two severed heads are on tables, face up.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the photo from a person who received it through a private group chat.

But that person, who demanded anonymity because of potential harm to their career, said the person who took the selfie did not give permission for it to be published for fear of being expelled.




As it turns out, Dr Uribe and his students in question just may be the victim of a drive-by selfie-ista;

Dr Uribe said he was teaching students how to place screws in the cadaver heads at the time during the 2017 DePuy Synthes Future Leaders Workshop, which focused on dental-related facial deformities.

He said at one point, someone took a photo.

‘Somebody unfortunately took a photo,’ Uribe said. ‘It was so quick. I wasn’t sure of the surroundings or scenery at that point.’

Officials at Yale and UConn Health said the universities have taken steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Please share on Facebook and Twitter, especially if you think Dr Uribe is unjustly taking heat.
