The cult of celebrity has reached a new low. No, I'm not talking about Kim Kardashian making millions from her wedding and then dumping the groom less than three months later. We could have predicted that. What is even worse is that one of the late John Lennon's body parts has sold for more than $31,000 at an auction.
Here's the story. Back in the mid-1960's, Dorothy Jarlett worked as Lennon's housekeeper at his home in Surrey, England. According to Ms. Jarlett's son, the two were very close, so much so that Lennon gave her a tooth he had removed by a dentist. Now, I know what you're thinking. What's the big deal? Famous people give housekeepers their extracted teeth all the time. Why are you making a big deal out of this, O'Reilly?
Well, there's more.
