CRAP !
The hyoid bone is a very special bone in the human skull which is unique in that it is not attached to any other bones in the body; rather, it is supported by a network of muscles and ligaments, which trap it like a fly in amber directly below the tongue.
The primary role of the hyoid bone is to support the weight of the tongue, allowing people to articulate words while speaking, and enabling the production of a wide range of vocalizations.
Without the hyoid bone, humans would be incapable of speech as we know it, so this bone represents a major step in human evolution.
