So, what was the deal with the DIY Home Gastric Bypass Surgery Kit that was for sale on Amazon?

The news is going to have it on tonight, but all I can find is stuff stating Amazon has now taken it off their site. Does anyone have any details?

  • I don't know. This is the first I have heard about it. What is the deal with Amazon? They were the one selling the How to be a Pedophile book.

  • I think it's someone idea of a joke. I hope it gets taken off, it is not safe to do that procedure yourself.

  • Maybe that's where I should market my "Why Pay Someone for a Lobotomy When You Can Do It Yourself for Free!" Book and Kit.


    By the way--I'm not taking any orders yet.  I'm having a hard time finding anyone willing to try it out for me, and I want to perfect it before I market it.  I must know too many smart people. . .

  • Wow, aside from Amazon....who is stupid enough to do their own gastric bypass? LOL reminds me of an episode of 1000 ways to die where a guy tried to give himself liposuction with the vacuum and sucked out his intestines. He died, obviously.

  • This was funny too.  Apparently it popped up for sale on Monday and has now been taken down.  I've been Googling it and there are some funny reviews!  http://www.meltingmama.net/wls/2011/01/do-it-yourself-bariatric-surgery-gastric-bypass-kit-on-amazon.html
