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.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
