Human Flesh is Baaaaaaaahd


All artists know that, how­ever much their work makes sense to them, there’s always the chance it’ll be lost on oth­ers. With that said, this Wild sheepone is a real head-scratcher. 25-year-old Nor­we­gian artist Alexan­der Weng­shoel had to have hip replace­ment surgery to repair a birth defect. Before going under the knife, he decided to video­tape the oper­a­tion and asked the doc­tor if he could keep the removed hip bone. Later, he showed the video and dis­played the bone at an art show. But it gets more bizarre. He boiled his hip bone to get some remain­ing flesh off of it and then ate it with a side of pota­toes and a glass of wine. He says, “I just wanted to use it in my art. I didn’t know at that time that I would boil it and eat it. But it just came really nat­u­rally.” He adds, “It’s not every day I will have a piece of human flesh which is mine and which it is pos­si­ble to eat, so I had a lit­tle taste, and then I thought, ‘That’s really nice.’” So if you’ve ever won­dered what human flesh tasted like…it’s not chicken.  He said his hip tasted a lot like “wild sheep.”

A baby girl born in India has had the head of her par­a­sitic twin suc­cess­fully removed from her stom­ach. The com­pletely formed head was attached by the neck to the ante­rior abdom­i­nal wall of the as-yet-unnamed infant, born May 13. The pedi­atric sur­geon who per­formed the
oper­a­tion said, “Blood from the baby’s chest and abdomen was feed­ing the head.” Doc­tors recon­structed the lit­tle girl’s abdom­i­nal wall, and after one more oper­a­tion in 45 days, she is not expected to suf­fer any com­pli­ca­tions as she grows.
A would-be rob­ber in Wash­ing­ton State found him­self in the rough after try­ing to rob a mini-mart staffed by an 89-year-old owner ready to tee off on his head and legs with a golf club. Miyo Koba was behind the counter of Frank’s Super­ette, which she’s run for six decades, when a ski-masked thug walked in bran­dish­ing a three-foot sword. When she refused to open the reg­is­ter, the man pushed her to the ground, where she spot­ted a golf club — which she swung at him, miss­ing his head, but land­ing a few solid blows to his legs. Koba, man­aged to scare the guy badly enough that he dropped the cash reg­is­ter he’d grabbed not far from the front door — with all the cash still inside. Police, who are con­tin­u­ing their inves­ti­ga­tion, say the sus­pect also stripped off all his cloth­ing near the scene.
