Huff – A poet in Colombia wants to go to Europe so much that he’s willing to fund the trip in a very ballsy way: selling his testicles.Rafael Medina Brochero, 52, is selling the matching set of semen-producing genitalia for the lump sum of $20,000 to fund a European tour in which he’ll participate in “Poetry for Peace in Colombia,” according to ColombiaReports.com. Brochero did not say whether the surgery would be covered in the $20,000, but he said the presumedly used testes might be able to be transplanted into a sterile person or used to make soup, Yahoo! Australia reported. It might be a desperate way to raise money, but Brochero sees it as addition by subtraction. The poet simply doesn’t want to repeat an experience he had while touring Bolivia last year when he ran out of cash and had to pawn his wedding ring, TheNewAge.co.za reported. Journalist Scott Carney, author of “The Red Market: On the Trail of the World’s Organ Brokers, Bone Thieves, Blood Farmers, and Child Traffickers” (Harper Collins), said Brochero’s ballsy sale must be considered an art project because there is no real market for testicles. ”There is no real value for any body part,” Carney told The Huffington Post. “It’s what gets negotiated, like a used car.”
Jesus christ, this guy fucking LOVES vacations huh? Like nothing is sacred in his pursuit of traveling. Pawned his wedding ring to fund his last trip, and now he’s gonna go ahead and chop off his balls to get to Europe. Just castrate the shit out of himself for airfare and lodging to get to some Poetry and Peace thing. I mean between poems, peace talks, and having no balls in your sack, that has to be the gayest vacation in history.
Look bro, I’m sure you think it’s gonna be a cool time and all, but here’s what I promise you. It’s not gonna be “slice out your balls and auction them to the highest bidder” cool. Not even the pasta in Italy is worth that price of admission. I’d recommend keeping your sack at full capacity and just having them Skype you into the conference. Way more practical.
PS – Would love to see the group of folks in the market for some testicles. Yikes.
