Excuse Me, Sister, Can You Spare Some Pee?

When this Salon piece came across my Twitter feed a few months ago, I saved it, but I thought it was closer to clickbait than reality. What do they say about “assuming?”

So pregnant women are selling positive pregnancy tests, or I guess more specifically their urine, on Craigslist for $25-30 a pop. That alone is creepy enough, but it’s the ultra ethical “don’t care what you use it for” statement that really turns my head. I think this makes cigarette companies look like beacons of honesty.

I can understand being aggravated by a man. I annoy myself with my profound masculinity. But, ladies, c’mon…if he’s not committing, could this really be the best way to get him on the wedding bandwagon?

Even more interesting is trying to anticipate how much cash money could be made from one bladderful of hormone laced pee. There’s nearly no overhead here besides the costs of the tests, but $30 each goes a long way of covering a box of First Response, even if she picked them up at Costco.

What would you do with riches you earned from urine sales?
