SCIENTISTS are pleading with people to exercise common sense after a sudden spike in hospital admissions were linked with canabalism.
Patients were admitted into local hospitals and clinics with gashes and bite marks on arms and legs.
"I understand children becoming a little confused about the phrase, but this is ridiculous" Food scientist Paul Miller said.
"It means one must exercise caution in their diet, not base a diet on what you're made out of!'
"How was I supposed to know?' said Henry Turner, an admitted patient. "I heard my wife use the phrase and started eating only meat, water and bones."
"My wife called the ambulance when I moved on to my own arm."
Mr.Turner denied ever hearing the phrase used colloquially before.
