Ever wanted to buy a dead body? Now you can!

1 June 2010

Gunther13Are you tired of trying to find body parts to buy online? Do you keep scouring eBay in the hope that, one day, you'll land a plush lot involving a cooler box full of kidneys and a jiffy bag with a tiny withered head in it?

Well, worry no more because German anatomist Gunther von Hagens is selling off bits of corpses from a mail-order service. Vampires and werewolves will be thrilled as these are effectively pork-scratchings to them. These aren't just snacks for cannibals though as he's also selling off bits of dead animals too.

Gunther von Hagens, of course, invented 'plastination' in which removes all the fluids from a cadaver and replaces them with hardened silicon, allowing body parts to be preserved forever.

Now he's opened a shop which can see you, dear consumer, able to buy a cross section of a fish for €600 (£507) or a bit of human head for €1,500. These objects can be posted out around the world, which will surely anger all manner of people and creep the shit out of your hungover postie.

Rumour has it that one Bitterwallet writer has already bought a face from the shop so he can disguise himself for pranks on a camping trip this week.

    Looks like someone fell out the ugly tree at birth and hit every branch on the way down. No, wait - pretty much all germans look pigshit ugly. Someone needs to cut THIS guy up for a change, he's probably a top secret nazi cold storage operative or whatever the fuck they call their agents who remain in hiding for decades.
  • Steve c.
    Funny you should say nazi operative as his father was apparently an SS chef or something. Also when he dies someone WILL cut him up as he wants his bits to be sent around the world to anatomy classes. (Wikipedia)
  • TheIllegitimateSonOfGunn
    I meant cut him up while he's still breathing.
  • TheIllegitimateSonOfGunn
    I know who this guy reminds me of - the dodgy little nazi chap with the specs and the black coat/hat from Raiders of the lost Ark. He's obviously learned many of the tricks of the trade from his father.

    Leave it to Hollywood to lighten up even Swedish characters in a big-budget remake. The U.S. version will most likely allow Lisbeth a bit of eyeliner, but no disturbing tattoos. I'll stick with the original version.
