“Give Me My Kidney Back!”

Ahhhhhhhh ha ha ha ha!

This is a funny story for a slow news day:

A Long Island doctor is going through a messy divorce, and he’s asking for an unusual bit of compensation from his wife — his kidney!

According to the NY Post, surgeon Richard Batista, 49, dumped his wife after she allegedly cheated on him — and is demanding $1.5 million in compensation for the kidney he gave her.

“I saved her life and then, to be betrayed like this, is unfathomable,” Dr. Batista tells the paper. “I feel humbled and betrayed and disregarded. This divorce is killing me.”

Richard donated the organ to wife Dawnell Batista in 2001. Within the next two years, Batista claims, his wife began an affair with her physical therapist David Cazalet. The therapist denies the infidelity, telling the newspaper, “We’re friends — we’ve never had an affair.” He added that Richard Batista is “a big monster.”

Ha ha ha ha ha!

This divorce is gonna cost her an arm and a leg … and a KIDNEY!!!!

(I couldn’t resist.)

(Seriously it’s a really slow news day.)

  • It’s really FUNNY,
    in every sense of the word,
    in my country we say
    “the one who gives and takes away
    goes to hell”;
    this case is going to open some kind of precedent,
    and from now on, prenups will mention this kind of possibility,
    the “in sickness and in health” speech
    will have a totally different meaning.
    Cmon, a kidney is not a ring,
    this colleague of mine is really looking for revenge,
    and there’s a conflict here with the oath of medical practice.

  • “I did not have sex with that woman!” because I’m not a physical therapist and I don’t live in New York, but I do have the same name.
    We’ve had a lot of fun with this today!
    I even got an e-mail from Entertainment Tonight wanting to interview me.
    Friends said I should go on the show and say, “We’re friends and we never had an affair!” (they really did)because I would be telling the truth.
