Looking to make a little money this summer? Why not sell a few minor organs? Yes, you too can make a bundle selling those extra bits of cartilage and viscera that you never use! All the cool kids are doing it!

DID YOU KNOW:

-Small intestines are running at just over $2500? PAy off your mortgage the easy way!

- Selling your pituitary gland can net you over $3000!!!? That's over $6000 PER OZ!!! You only have to collect 332 other pituitary glands to make $1,000,000! Invite your friends!

- A complete brain will bring you OVER $17,000!!!!!!! That's well on the way to buying a new sports car!

Selling minor parts like a testicle or a kneecap involves only minor surgery. Name another summer job where you can earn thousands of dollars a week with a brief hospital visit? I didn't think so.

Fortune is only a call away!

I'm hosting a wet-ware party, where all of my friends who no longer use their brains can come to donate them to science. I get paid a commission, of course, but I'm serving humanity AND saving up for a Bentley. How cool is that?!

I could sell an egg for quite a bit if I wanted. I could sell a few.

Basic business model for Waffle House. Go for it.

One of my best friends is actually going through the process right now. After I see more of how it works, I may seriously consider it :)

Also, waffle house is the worst. They're just the worst.

I think part of the franchise decor is dirty tile walls, dead crickets in the corners, and a sign with one bulb burnt out.

But, hey, you can always tell where the mugs have been; and usually what they last held, too.

On a more serious note, egg donation does carry some health risks for the donor; probably not something to do on any sort of regular basis, since livers aren't that easy to come by and varian cancer isn't much fun. But, at $4000 per, it's not bad for a few weeks of paperwork and tests, and one small procedure.

Yep. It's definitely a thing to take great care in considering. But the payoff... It'd be really nice to be handed $4,000. How quickly it would go....
