Celebrity Skin
Ever wanted to own a piece of a celebrity? What about a really personal piece? Celebrity Skin sells fecal matter, skin cells, bacteria, and urine (but no blood) from a variety of celebrities. The organization was "formed in 2003 by an anonymous collective of former Hollywood personal assistants". Unfortunately once you buy it, you have to keep it. There are no returns. Yes, this is a hoax. The black pitch press site describes it as one of its "failed projects and stray debris".

Interesting. Apparently, some people's poop is worth more than others. I wonder how the pricing structure works.

According to Alex, this is a hoax - however, never underestimate humanity's willingness to make money. Not to mention the fact that no matter what you can imagine, someone, somewhere, sometime, has either tried it, or is willing to try it (or buy it).

I wouldn't doubt if this was something serious in a few years...maybe to clone a celebrity. You could give birth to your very own Brad Pitt.

Hey- Elvis's costume with sweat is worth more than Elvis's costume freshly laundered. Several years ago, Tim Conway gave me his finger. Actually, he gave me The Finger. He was in the car next to me at a stoplight and I stared at him, so he flipped me off. I get that a lot.
