What would you be willing to do for a new car? Perhaps your answers range from sensible (take on some part-time work to earn extra dough) to over-the-top (buy scratch tickets until I hit it big!). Crazy dude, Mark Parisi, is taking it a step further. On the TV show “The Doctors,” Parisi announced that he will be “donating” his left testicle for medical research at the sum of $35,000. (Well, at least we know the going rate for a ball. ) Mind you, he is doing this solely so he can afford to buy the Nissan 370z he’s been coveting.
I had no idea it was an option to sell off body parts willy nilly. I really want to put a down payment on an apartment and do a bit of traveling. I wonder how much I could get for my right boob? [Metro UK]
On a special celebrity questions edition of “The Doctors,” LaToya Jackson revealed that she managed to live all her years on Earth without making the connection that asparagus makes your pee smell disgusting. Don’t I know it. Sometimes I avoid eating it just because of the smell. Well, anyhow, LaToya discovered this phenomenon when a friend came over to her house and he used the restroom. She (accidentally? on purpose?) smelled his stinky urine. Then, the next night, she went out to dinner and when she peed, she had stinky pee, too! LaToya thought she caught the pee stank from her friend, so natch she went to the doctor and he diagnosed her with asparagus-y pee. Still reeling from this discovery, she felt compelled to appear on “The Doctors” to ask WHY. It’s the B vitamins. In case you were wondering. [AOL]
