Medtronic at center of human head shipment flap
This story from Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal turned our heads not once but twice. First because a shipment of about 60 human heads destined for Minneapolis-based Medtronic's Fort Worth, Texas, offices was held up at the Little Rock, Ark.

And we're thinking, whoa, homegrown blue chip company engaged in black market body parts smuggling? Nah, nothing like that.
Which leads us double take No. 2: This kind of thing happens all the time, evidently. The Arkansas Press-Democrat reports the full and partial -- partial! -- heads were being shipped to be used as part of a medical training. Egad.
The shipment of heads, earmarked for medical trainees, was stopped by investigators in Arkansas because it wasn't properly labelled.
Nothing to see here people. Move along.
