    You speak a funny language EeeBees.
    Got to try my whip out. Goes great.
    I knew she would play up sooner or later.

    Hi Eebees. I had a hip replacement last year and kept the head of my femur. it's in the garden getting cleaned at the moment and I'm hoping the formalin isn't wiping out too many critters as they eat. I've always intended that it would be the head on a walking stick. Will boil it and peroxide it soon and hopefully it will be nice and white. Would you be interested in making me a stick? And roughly the price? Probably best to PM me.
    Thanks,
    Ken

    That's a bit freaky making things out of your own bones. Definitely a conversation starter, or stopper.

    I have heard it is the 'hip' thing to do these days
    Werawhakaui?

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    So ah, hey. Can you make a walking stick out of the end of my own thigh bone for me?

    Loved how casually you asked what is possibly the weirdest request I have ever read on a forum!

    Well it worked for me for 65 years, I'm not gonna waste the bugger now. It can keep on pulling its weight. And hard labour for crapping out on me.

    Only if it is a hip. And even then it's still freaky.
    Would be interesting filming peoples reaction if they were holding it when they were told what it was.
    This could be the start of a whole new business for you @EeeBees
    You're not getting any of my bones though. I'm still using them all.
