Out Of Curiosity, How Does One 'Ethically Source' A Human Spine?
For those of us working from home, "high fashion" isn't exactly at the top of everybody's priorities. Sweatpants are the standard now. Accessories? Yeah, even wearing socks is a tall ask at this point. Which makes this a great time to talk about what might be the freakiest handbag ever stitched together.
And while we also can't speculate on how exactly how much it cost to get a spine from Canada, there are reports that he was trying to sell the bag in 2016 for around $5000. We're not exactly on the up and up with black-market body part pricing (Not after our incident with Sergio.), but we have to assume wayyyyy more than five grand went into making this thing. A cursory Google search for alligator tongue, which is the other key component of the bag, is listed at about $30/pound, so the bag portion alone is probably a few hundred bucks at the absolute minimum. You'd have to imagine this was a fairly labor-intensive custom project too, so that's gonna cost you as well.
We'll just come right out and say it -- we don't think you can "ethically source" a human spine for under $5,000. If that bag showed up in a Party City in late September, plenty of people would maybe spend about $15 on it as a high-end trick-or-treat bag for a kid who's an abnormally big Tim Burton fan, but that's about it.
