“Are There Other Fairies Like The Tooth Fairy That Pay Money For Human Body Parts?” Asks Child to Shocked Mom

6-year-old Mark Buffet has posed a question that has left his mother, Nancy Buffet, both bewildered and concerned: “Mom, are there any other fairies like the Tooth Fairy that pay money for human body parts?”

The question reportedly arose yesterday morning after Mark found $5 under his pillow in exchange for his latest lost tooth, sparking an entrepreneurial curiosity about the potential fortune he could make if something like the appendix fairy exists.

“At first, I thought it was just a harmless question,” said Nancy, still clutching the half-empty glass of wine she poured after the incident. “But then he started listing body parts and estimating their market value. That’s when I knew we were heading into uncharted territory.”

Mark, whose entrepreneurial spirit has previously been demonstrated by his lemonade stand’s suspiciously high profit margins, presented his mother with a list of potential body part fairies.

The list included:

  1. Toenail Fairy: A niche market, but Mark speculates some weirdo would pay $10 per pound.
  2. Hair Fairy: Offers $1 per inch of hair, with bonuses for rare colors.
  3. Adult Tooth Fairy: Uncertain about the rate but believes they must be more valuable than baby teeth.
  4. Appendix Fairy: A one-time payout of $250, possibly negotiable depending on the condition of the appendix.

Nancy tried to explain the biological and legal ramifications of Mark’s proposal, but he remained undeterred, citing the Tooth Fairy’s existence as a sign that other fairies exist.

“Look, Mom, if there’s a fairy willing to pay for teeth, why wouldn’t there be one for other things?” Mark reasoned. “It’s basic supply and demand. Plus, I have 10 toes worth of toenails, and that’s money I’m leaving on the table!”

Local pediatrician Dr. Susan Miller, who was consulted by the concerned mother, suggested that while Mark’s interest in the human body’s economic potential is unusual, it’s not entirely without precedent.

“Children often engage in magical thinking,” Dr. Miller explained. “However, it’s crucial to channel this curiosity in a safe and educational manner, perhaps by introducing him to more appropriate entrepreneurial activities, like taking a lawn mowing job for $20 but paying another kid in the neighborhood $15 to do the work.”

As for Mark, he remains undaunted, reportedly drafting a letter to the Tooth Fairy seeking insider information on the body part market. “If there’s a Booger Fairy,” he said, “I’m going to be rich.”
