Just found myself thinking it must be April 1st confused

Heard this on the radio earlier. What an utter moron. What's he going to do when the upgrade comes out (Ipad 2 or whatever) sell a lung? hmm

TheMonster Sat 04-Jun-11 10:30:28

I want an iPhone, but I would only go as far as selling DS grin

Actually, I sometimes think life would be easier without a brain. How much do you think they go for?

How very sad. I hope he stays healthy.

Perhaps he could upgrade each year by selling small chunks of his liver, because that organ is able to regenerate hmm

WEll that just exemplifies how moronic some yoof are today, doesn't it. Valuing some piece of electronic tat that will be out of date in a few years over a perfectly good functional body organ - let's hope his other one doesn't give out on him.

Idiot.

But, in China, life is cheap.
I did joke about DH being willing to give a kidney to get his iPad. Now he has it, he isn't as impressed as he thought he would be.
I really hope this young man's other kidney stays healthy.
