Taking home organs

Can you take home your organs you have removed?

I know a guy that was got a free Baldwin Fun-Machine[sup]TM[/sup] that way.

I knew a guy who took his appendix home with him in a glass jar. This was a while back, though. Are we talking about organs that have failed, or are you just desperate for knick-knacks and conversation pieces?

A friend had her gallbladder and appendix removed and I asked if she was going to keep them. She said she didn’t think she could. I thought a person could keep their organs, but I wasn’t sure.

My girlfriend was offered her tonsils in a jar when she had them removed. She refused. That was about 8 years ago, though, so things may have changed since then.
