BEIJING (AP) - Villagers in central China dug up a ton of dinosaur bones and boiled them in soup or ground them into powder for traditional medicine, believing they were from flying dragons and had healing powers.

Until last year, the fossils were being sold in Henan province as "dragon bones" at about 4 yuan (50 cents) per kilogram (2.2 pounds), scientist Dong Zhiming told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

We've got an irritating upper class TV chef over here called Hugh Fearnley-Whitingstall who is renowned for stunts like cooking up human afterbirth (as apparently did our ancestors) on his show on the wearyingly controversial Channel 4. This sounds like his sort of thing to me.

My diet has been places you wouldn't even go with a hand gun, but I draw the line at anything which has just popped out of someone's toilet parts.
I wonder how that soup tasted?

You might be quite distressed to know some of the places I've been with a hand gun!
