UPDATE: Alas, this show was cancelled after four episodes, the I Heart Guts episode was number six. Oh well. If you happen to watch TLC, you may have seen previews for a new show called “The Good Buy Girls,” which chronicles the highs and lows of a small home shopping network. Struggling to break through to the big time, charismatic show hosts Brook Roberts and Tara Gray are looking to inject a little life into their usual offerings by discovering interesting new products to sell on TV. Described as one part “Shark Tank” with a dash of “The Office” and a sprinkle of “Real Housewives,” this show offers a behind-the-scenes look at what makes a home shopping network tick. They explore selling Fabio health shakes, pet treadmills, menopause pajamas and, yes… plush organs! Watch the I Heart Guts episode June 26, it’s on 7pm EST/6 CNT every Wednesday, so give ‘em your eyeballs. Hopefully we will put the “learning” back into The Learning Channel!

Our new plush tooth recently visited Florida for some beaching and bleaching and sent us this postcard. Thanks, Rachel, for taking your tooth with you on vacation! “After careful examination of this deciduous molar,” wrote Gilberto R. on our Facebook page, “I have found three carious lesions (cavities): 2 in the pits (not to be confused with “eyeballs”) and one along the groove (not to be confused with a mouth with one tooth) Now I need my drill and some filling material and I’ll have him looking completely shiny white!”

American Heart Association. American Liver Foundation. American Lung Association. Think of an organ, and most of the time you can think of a non-profit that lives and breathes for a particular organ. But what about the organs we can live without? There is no American Spleen Foundation because most of the time they cut that thing out and toss it in the incinerator as you move into life without this import, yet inessential immune system pal. So we think it’s high time to celebrate the organs you can live without — the gallbladder, spleen and appendix — with their own non-profit. We are proud to introduce the Organization for Organs With No Organization (OOWNO) to celebrate those guts that are gone but not forgotten (actually, these is a Gallbladder Cancer organization). Share you story of your lost appendix with us!
