Lindsay Lohan reportedly keeps her appendix in her freezer because she was so worried it would end up being sold on eBay she asked the hospital staff if she could take it home.  Additionally, her friend Kimberly Stewart is trying to get her to auction it off for charity herself.

Here is (not much) more.

I save all my nail clippings for the same reason. And all my hair from haircuts.

Oh, and I never flush the toilet.

(Just kidding, in case it wasn’t obvious.)

Sadly, eBay does not allow the sale of human body parts or, ehm, effluvia.

To be serious for a moment, the idea that she might be considering selling the appendix can’t be dismissed. How hard would it have been for her simply to burn it? Or run it through a garbage disposal? She’s keeoing it for a reason, and I can’t help but think…

She could write a scholarly book, and add the appendix at the end.

She should put it up on ebay as a charity auction, perhaps the money going to charity would outweigh their policy?

p.s. why did my last post end up in this thread? weird…

I can see no reason why cocaine couldn’t be written off (say as COGS), provided that you’re not snorting it yourself and also assuming you’re declaring your income from dealing it and/or from clients who receive it as a gratuity.
