We aren't entirely sure what's stranger about this story - that a man actually sold a vital piece of his manhood for a car, or that he did it for a Nissan 370Z. That's not to discredit the trusty Fairlady, a car we generally like, but that if we were to do what Mark Parisi did and sell one of his testicles to science, we'd be asking for a helluva lot more than $35,000.

But Parisi did just that, and announced live on CBS' The Doctors (we really can't make this up) that the sale of his nut would go towards the purchase of a Z. According to our friends Down Under (Australia, get your mind out of the gutter), $35K is the going rate for one slightly used testicle, so if you get nothing else from this story, gentlemen, know that you have $70,000 swinging between your legs.

      "$35K is the going rate for one 'slightly' used testicle." Slightly used? How can you tell how "used" someone else's testicles are? Show me the BALLFAX? Idk...

      Hundreds of times I've heard one guy or another say "I'd give my left testicle to have a ...." but this is the first time I've heard of anyone actually going through with it.

        Reminds me of the Mastercard "commercial" after the Red Sox won the World Series in '04. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-WhIpdqrNk

      What's strangest to ME is that someone would pay $35k for a testicle.

      Holy crap! I'm not comfortable with the idea of my wife walking around with something worth $70k in her purse!
