Ebay is to blame
...for a lot of people's impulse buys, mine is no different. A quick search for a new case to house my moderate guitar pedal collection produced pretty much exactly the item I required within the first three results. Ever eager to find a bargain I scrolled through the first couple of pages only to notice, about half way down the second page, one of the thumbnails appeared to depict a skeleton. A quick click revealed the item was indeed 'Large wooden display case for sale... contains actual human skeleton'. £98 Buy It Now. Bargain! £98 for a whole person! Getting her (It's a female skeleton, her name is Jo) from London back to my house near Oxford was a bit of a pickle but totally worth it as the reaction she gets from first time guests is awesome.

When we move house I want to remove a few obviously human bones and hide them under our patio for the new owners to find... My girlfriend is very much against the idea though :(

I clicked
But immediately afterwards suspected that there's something illegal and thus improbable about this? But I was wrong! Can't argue there!

if it's photo's you want...
My, we are a suspicious bunch aren't we!

I have looked into it and the legality of it is dubious at best, I have since spoken to someone who paid £250 just for a skull from some dodgy guy in camden so we definitely got a baargain. We found a little brass plaque on it and did a little digging on teh t'interwebz and Jo was originally an anatomical model at a school sometime in the late 1800's - early 1900's

...yes that is a rubber vulture on top of the skeleton in our living room, we have fairly poor taste when it comes to décor it seems...
