My friend, although I know you weren't joking, you should have. I find it amusing to the point of breaking down laughing when someone tries to justify the use of something as grotesque as our friend in Montreal has suggested, by giving examples of even more grotesque and even gross things.

Von Hagens is an anatomist and his work is displayed in museums for educational purposes. As for John Duncan, I got that he is a sexually obsessed individual from what I've just read and Zhu Yu a cannibal; both FBI and Scotland Yard investigated the "human fetus eating" thing. Others say that Zhu Yu cooked and ate a duck. The truth is not known.

As far as the catholics "eating" the flesh of Christ and "drinking" his blood is concerned, please have mercy! Don't make me roll on the floor laughing hysterically. Do I really need to explain the term - metaphor?

Hagens used 30 real cadavers in "Body Worlds" and performed a public autopsy 
on one as a perormance piece in 2002, Zhu Yu consumed a deceased baby in the 
London performance of "Beijing Swings" in 2003, while John Duncan had 
penetrative sex with with a female cadever in Mexico 1980 as a performance 
piece. OF course then there is Ryo Yoshida who ALLEGEDLY uses real human 
tissue and skin in the creation of his dolls and puppets...have a look at 
these two links and see what you think......... 
(Warning....Contains sexually implicit material!!!)
So the use of a clean skull, though off putting, isnt so deranged as all 
(and remember that Roman Catholics still believe that they are eating the 
flesh and drinking the blood of Christ)
Just something to put Easter into focus :-)
