A man has reportedly eaten his own hip after originally telling doctors who removed it he was going use it for art.
Alexander Selvik Wengshoel, from Norway, had the deformed bone cut out four years ago and replaced with a metal one.
Prior to the operation he was only able to move using crutches and a wheelchair.
The 25-year-old has now revealed he feasted on his hip instead of using it in an art project as he originally intended to.
‘I just wanted to use it in my art. I didn’t know at that time that I would boil it and eat it,’ he told The Local.
‘I had to boil off the meat to get to the bone, and when I started scraping off the meat, I took off a little piece and I thought, why not do it.’
The artist seemed to have no regrets and added: ‘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”.’
Wengshoel also reportedly filmed his operation.
