It's not a good idea for future business, right? But the managers of the Island Bay Playcentre in Wellington, New Zealand think that auctioning off a vasectomy will help raise money right now.
The operation normally costs about $316 USD. Dr. Shane Dunphy, who has performed about 1,000 vasectomies, will inflict one to the winner of the auction. Matt Stewart writes for Stuff:
The voucher is valid until June but features a caveat - no frozen peas included, which is commonly applied by patients to reduce swelling.
Widely hailed as "hilarious" on the centre's Facebook page, the surgical auction item sparked some lively discussion including this gem from a mum to a dad: "Just saying, 2 c-sections later, now it's your turn."
P.S. My wife comments, "I wonder if they've picked the parent they really want to win."
