Colbert Reports On Disturbing Trend Of People Selling Body Parts For Cash

Stephen Colbert (the character) doesn't usually spend a lot of time worrying about the 99%, but his curiosity was piqued when he heard that cash-strapped people are auctioning off their hair and Googling how to sell their kidneys for $15,000 a piece.

"Better yet, why not make 30 grand and sell both kidneys? If you insist on filtering your blood, just jam a couple Brita filters in there," he joked.

Hear the rest in Colbert's latest edition of "The Word" above.
