Just the leg bone!

/ And the thigh bone is connected to the ;; leg bone and the leg bone is connected to the ;; foot bone

They weren't sure he was footed, clearly..

Although badly damaged and missing their knees, shins and feet, the thigh bones were found after the fierce recent storms caused severe coastal erosion.

But the thigh bone's connected to the hip bone
His hip bone's connected to the back bone
His back bone's connected to the shoulder bone
His shoulder bone's connected to the neck bone
And his neck bone's connected to the head bone
The fileted friar's heard the word of the Lord.

Had a college roommate that would buy albums based on their covers.  He came home with this one day and it surprised me as not bad.  Albums, for you younger farkers, are these things you may have heard referred to as records.  We had no Google back then, and there wasn't much on Tibetan Thighbones in the card catalog at the library.  Jeez, I'm regressing.

Yep, I'm trying not to thread-jack, but, I had met G.P. Orridge a long time ago (still married to Paula, no Breyer involved and he was still considered a "he"). He really liked talking about tibetan thigh bone tumpets. And to think I was listening to Dokken before I went in to the show. The episode of Oddities made me sad for him.

FTA: "The valley was named after the Welsh saint Cewydd..."

"Cewydd", btw, is pronounced "kaut" more or less. Yeah. Welsh.

Also, FTA: "Mr Langford said a monastic community lived close to the area and the bones appeared to be from a man in his late 20s, in good health."

Except for the whole "dead and buried" thing, one presumes.
