Jose Canseco selling shot off finger

Former Major League Baseball slugger Jose Canseco's announced on Twitter Monday that he will sell his finger, the finger he accidentally shot off earlier this month.

Canseco accidentally shot off his finger and had it surgically reattached, but Canseco says the finger fell off during a poker tournament and now he plans to sell both the handgun that shot his finger off and the finger.

Here are the tweets from @JoseCanseco:

First, the former American League MVP offers to sell the .45 caliber Remington.

Next, he describes plans for an eBay ad that refers to the "slightly used middle finger with 462 home runs" that could be, quote, "used as a stirring straw for drinks".

Later, he describes the gun in detail and says that, with the finger, he might offer the two items as a package deal.

There is a problem with that, however. eBay has a policy against selling body parts.
