The digestive system in the style of the London Underground 'tube' map
London Tube map of the digestive system. Inspired from the original design by Jack Anderson.
"You're trying to get to the liver? See, what you wanna do is take the red line past the stomach, then switch trains at the duodenum. Green line'll take you right there. Oh, you need to get to the appendix after that? Get back on the green line, back to the duodenum, switch to the red southbound, then get off at the caecum station. The purple express goes right to the appendix. Whatever you do, stay off the blue line. It winds up in a pretty bad neighborhood."
