Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 55)

This screenshot from the TV show Ozark (S02E06) was sent to me by Rosie Bongiovanni Tullos and Sara Juengst, both biological anthropologists. Neither could believe just how very VERY wrong this is:

Let's start from the top, shall we? Those clavicles... the scapula... not sure why the ribs are placed like that... upside down vertebrae... upside down humeri and radius... zero wrist bones... and the missided ossa coxarum.

The only things that are correct are the femora, sacrum, and mandible. Frankly, I'm surprised the femora are correct since whoever the makeup fx/prop master is for this show clearly didn't know left from right bones.

Seriously, how hard is it to google for what a human skeleton looks like?

There are several museums in Europe that need to check their skeletal remains on display : The Archaeology Museum in Wrocław, The Archaeology Museum in Gdańsk, The Prague Castle, and The Nues Museum In Berlin.
