I am Joe’s colon: With the goal of educating the public about colorectal cancer, a nonprofit group is bringing a 20-foot-long inflatable, walk-through model of a human colon to Everett Mall. The giant colon shows examples of healthy tissue, polyps and various stages of colorectal cancer.

A reminder: If you see black light posters and Insane Clown Posse T-shirts for sale, you are not touring the Super Inflatable Colon; you are inside Spencer Gifts.
