Well, this is the kind of news story that makes you want to revisit that tribute-to-mamas song by Mr T*. A woman living in a slum in Bangladesh, has put up one of her eyes for sale so that her two-and-half-year-old daughter doesn’t die from starvation. Abandoned by her husband and unable to find work, selling something she had two of was a last resort. Sadly, there have been no takers. (Yahoo via Reuters)
*We’d like to thank John Flannery for sending us this link to a full page of Mr T and info on how we can Be Somebody and learn how to rap and do the Jeff! Wish we’d had access to this stuff back in the ’80s.
