      1. Indeed, on the left is the heart flanked by the lungs. The liver is the big boy in the middle with a pair of kidneys to it’s right. Beneath them is the spleen. I’m pretty sure “Marge Simpson’s butt” is the remnants of the gall bladder. A reaction with the bile acids/cholesterol/fatty acids or something.

        To be honest, I would have expected it to just eat through the esophagus/stomach and cause massive internal bleeding and death in short order. I guess I’d never given it much thought, because apparently it actually got absorbed and pumped through the circulatory system? That just seems insane.

        For reference, that means the acid would go from the stomach to the intestines, where it would be absorbed into the portal blood system that feeds the liver. From there it would travel through the IVC to the right side of the heart, get pumped through the lungs back to the left side of the heart. From there it gets pumped into the aorta.

        The first arteries coming off of the aorta actually feed right back to the heart. The next branches supply the brain and upper extremities (brachiocephalic, carotid, subclavian).

        From there it would hit the celiac trunk, which supplies the stomach, pancreas, liver and spleen. Up next is the SMA, which supplies blood to the upper intestines. Next come the renal arteries supplying the kidneys. Then the gonadal arteries (oof) and the IMA (lower intestines), and, finally, the aorta splits into the iliac arteries which become the femoral arteries and supply the lower extremities. You can see that the heart and lungs got it worse than the organs that were further downstream.
