“Over My Dead Body!” / A Memorable Fancy #212

I used to sell my blood at NIH, when they used to pay. Now I’m signed up to give away my body parts when I die – says so on my driver’s license – blood, fingers, liver, brain, precious bodily fluids, and all.

If something is valuable enough to want, the person providing the goods ought to be compensated, right? I’ve got half a mind to sell half my mind and just think with the other half, but the two halves keep arguing over who gets to stick around.
