Insurance for ... Taste Buds?!

Sure you can insure your house, car, precious artwork ... but how about taste buds? Turns out that you CAN insure parts of your anatomy, especially when those parts generate income. For example:

John Harrison

No wonder he’s smiling. John Harrison is, and has been for many years, the official ice cream taster at Dreyer’s Ice Cream and on a daily basis approves or rejects ice cream according to its many different varieties of flavour, colour and texture. It’s a difficult job but someone’s got to do it, and that someone just happens to be John, a man who uses a gold spoon (there’s no aftertaste) to judge ice cream in order to pay the bills. Unsurprisingly, his taste buds are insured for £700,000.
