    It's funny. I heard this story this morning on Paul Harvey's radio broadcast. It's an urban myth of course. http://www.snopes.com/horrors/cannibal/tapping.htm

        What I think is funny is that Yahoo News and Paul Harvey didn't check Snopes or truthorfiction.com, instead of just reporting it.

          I though Paul Harvey was long dead and we did not have his drivel on the air anymore. Guess it was just wishful thinking...

          Cheers, John

            Personally I have always enjoyed Paul Harvey but I guess he is vulnerable to news inaccuracies. He is older like myself and I have always enjoyed his thoughts.

            I sort of believed that this story was a bit of a hoax from the gitgo. I guess Snopes sort of validated this.

              Paul,
              I must admit, that I am an avid user of the Snopes web site..I have been burned badly in the past.
              I just figured... a news article on Yahoo... It must've been real since it was past april Fools day..
              Makes me more all the blonde..

                Keep in mind that Snopes didn't tag the story as false. It's listed with a white symbol, which means "identifies legends of indeterminate origin". IOW, they can't say either way.
