Some things you just can’t make up. Then just when you think you’ve seen it all, here comes something that makes you shake your head.
Mark Parisi spoke on the CBS show The Doctors about his plans to donate his left testicle to science. Along with a new artificial testicle, Parisi will receive $35,000 for his contribution to science, which he plans to use to buy a car.
Parisi, who was featured on the TLC show Extreme Cheapskates, often participates in highly invasive and dangerous medical procedures for cash and free medical checkups. As Forbes points out, selling body parts is illegal under The National Organ Transplant Act, which is why Parisi carefully frames the fee as a ‘donation’ for his time.
What car could prompt a man to donate a part of himself? How about a Nissan 370Z?
The 370Z is a sports car, with 3.7-liter V6 engine knocking out 350 horsepower. According to AOL Autos New Car tool it’s listed as retailing for around $36,000, or more than the cost of one human testicle.
I would recommend he get a car that will help him compensate, but apparently he doesn’t listen to the show.
