'Freakshow': Man Makes Money By Having Spectators Staple It Onto His Body (VIDEO)

A hobo named Digger brought his special performance trick to the latest episode of "Freakshow." He asked the audience to staple money to any part of his body. To ensure it was a good stick, he even had them using industrial staples.

It was like a game of pin the tail on the donkey, only the tail was money and the donkey was a man who didn't seem to feel the pain from being impaled. Or maybe it was just that each prick of pain meant he was making money.

Normally, staples like that do cause injury. There are countless appearances in hospital emergency rooms of people who've either stapled themselves or been stapled by someone else. One New Jersey police officer even required two separate operations to fix the damage caused after he stapled his finger.

But that doesn't stop Digger, who's turned getting stapled into an act. See more startling acts on "Freakshow," Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on AMC.
