Anyone heard of this before? I just discovered it. Here's the article, courtesy of Neatorama:

 

The Sedlec Ossuary resides in a small Roman Catholic chapel in Sedlec, Czech Republic. If you didn’t know any better, you wouldn’t have guessed that inside the unassuming building is an ossuary containing about 40,000 human skeletons artistically arranged to form decorations, chandeliers, and furnishings!

 

In the 13th century, an abbot returned to Sedlec with a small amount of earth from Golgotha, the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, and sprinkled it all over the abbey’s cemetery. This made the grounds of the church a desirable burial site and over centuries thousands of people were buried there.

 

In 1870, František Rint, a woodcarver was hired to put the heaps of bones in order. He decided to make a work of art out of the skeletal remains: a chandelier made from skull and bones, a coat of arms of the family that paid him to do the work, and even an "artist’s signature" done in bone, of course!

Ooh. We're off to Prague next month, the regulation day trip was going to be to Český Krumlov but I might reconsider now. Although "Darling, want to come and look at some skulls with me?" might take a bit of hard selling.

 

you could add....I wanna jump your bones ;)

Song for the journey:

 

My cock bone's connected to his arse bone

His arse bone's connected to my cock bone

 

And repeat, til you get there, then take down one of the fibula's and rifle his arsehole with it.

 

Best day trip you'll ever had - guaranteed!

A man of the world like you recommending a dry bone? I'm shocked!

He'll be naturally moist from thinking about the connotations of the song he's sang all the way there man.
