Chinese Boy Sells Kidney For iPad: Reserves Soul For Simon Cowell

by | 3rd, June 2011

RONAN Parke has not sold his kidney to pay for Simon Cowell’s iPad? But elsewhere on the internet we learn that a Chinese teenager has flogged his organ for a gadget.

A 17-year-old called Little Zheng (yeah, really – his parents called him an Little, as in Syd Little) says he flogged his kidney over the web and used the money to buy an iPad 2. He saw the advert calling for Cash 4 Kidneys and duly scooped $3,392 (£2,077) for one of his. That was enough money for him to buy an iPad 2 and a laptop (the brand of the laptop is not given, but we think it was an  – ouch! – iBall).

It turns out that you do not pay through the nose or with your eye teeth for an apple gadget, just with an internal organ.

As for young Parke being Cowell’s latest star… Well, you only need your soul after your dead, allegedly…
