Anyway, what's the most insane piece of celebrity memoribilia that you'd buy? I'm not talking about Hobbit coffee or plush dolls or LEGOs here. I mean like Elvis's crypt, which was up for sale in May but later pulled because, according to Rolling Stone, fan outrage was pretty much universal. The seller was hoping for an opening bid of $100,000, about twenty times less than the price of the Gretzky T206 Honus Wagner baseball card currently owned by Ken Kendrick (who also owns the Arizona Diamondbacks).
The Daily Telegraph reported yesterday that there's a company set to launch next year that's going to up the stakes expotentially. Fame Daddy is offering celebrity lovers a one stop shop for sperm donations: athletes, rock stars, actors. You can see why I thought I might be speechless for a minute there. I double checked the masthead and it was not, in fact, The Weekly World News which kind of freaked me out but then I thought, why? It's not like rock stars haven't donated sperm before, right?
Then I clicked the website. Wow. There are sample profiles of prospective fathers and if those leave you flummoxed there's a handy quiz to help you zero in on the baby daddy for you. Really, I can't do it justice.
So, what do you all think? Is this a brave new frontier or a REALLY cynical marketing gimmick? Or do you think the Telegraph got punked and it's a joke? Comments are open.
