So. This guy ATE his own hip. Thoughts?

That's the path taken by 25-year-old Norwegian Alexander Selvik Wengshoel. Wengshoel was born with a deformed hip and has spent most of his life in pain, enduring years in a wheelchair, hours of morphine treatment, and countless surgeries. Four years ago he was offered a metal hip replacement, which he accepted on the grounds that his doctors let him film the operation and keep the old hip. When he got home he cooked the flesh and ate it with some potato gratin and a glass of wine, all in the name of art.

I'm gonna throw up. That's cannabalism. I hope his dr. didn't know what he wanted to keep the old hip for.

I read that new article. I think it is so gross. I love my steak and chicken but human? No thanks, I'll pass

 He should make soup from the bone and share it with family and friends.

Very off! Probably from all the meds he has had to take.

I'm guessing his list of heroes include Hannibal Lecter and Ed Gein. So... at least he ate his own hip and not someone else's? Let's just hope he hasn't developed an insatiable craving for human flesh...

W.T.F.
