“I got me my new kidney at Wal-Mart!” by Martin Luther Gene

Wal-Mart Kidney?

Well why not?

“Today, it is the largest importer of Chinese-made products in the world, buying $10
billion worth of merchandise from several thousand Chinese factories. (Indy Week)

So when I read this article:
China ‘selling prisoners’ organs’

It hit me! Wal-Mart should start under-cutting the medical community the same way it’s
shafted countless other American businesses and industries! After all, it did move it’s
worldwide purchasing headquarters to China. Why not cash in on the glut of Chinese organ
harvesting?

Why not give the HMO’s and the PPO’s a reason to fear like any other business who’s seen
their lively-hood vaporize when the shadow of “Sam’s Evil Beast” falls upon them?

Picture a medical bay between the automotive service department and the gardening
supplies… a cheerful sign reads something to the effect of: “Welcome to ol’ Doc Sam’s
Surg’ry Club, where ya don’t have to pay an arm & an a leg for an arm & an a leg!” (this
is a text balloon coming from their “happy face” mascot wearing an old time doctor’s
reflector on it’s smiley head). They could even offer a “2-for-1″ deal: “get a set of
tires AND a transplant of the organ / limb of yur choice for 1 low price!”.

Just a thought.
