The Price Is Right, Dr. Brown Style
In honor of this week's feature story on former hand surgeon and all-around weird dude Michael Brown, and seeing as how it's Friday, we thought we'd have some fun with a Price Is Right-style walk through the inventory of belongings in Brown's 2005 bankruptcy filing. We must point out, though, that he emerged unscathed from his Chapter 11 filing, as his adjusted gross income in 2009 was $18 million.
Here are some of the items he listed -- lovers of bronze and/or wildlife will be pleased. Can you guess each item's value? Hint: Prices range from $10 to $1,500.
Bronze lions Bronze birds Letter from George Bush Bronze leopard Muhammad Ali memorabilia Bronze statue of a buffalo Statue of child with rooster Bronze bison statue Christmas carousel Ape head statue Muhammad Ali book Hen statues Leather chaps Leather gloves Leather garments Stuffed bear Entertainment system for disco lights Tanning beds Mounted pheasants Kodiak brown bear Bowflex Decorative sword Painting of lion Rolex Mask with feathers Lion Bronze statue of Indian and horse Coffee table books Glider Leopard Hunting knives Cape buffalo Gold chain Aromatherapy bed Free weights Bronze parrot
By the way, we call dibs on the fucking leopard.
