Creative Funding: Woman Panhandles for Breast Implants

There wasn't a lot of celebrity buzz this week, so instead, we bring you this very resourceful woman: 

Chrissy Lance, 37, is panhandling for breast implant money. Her sign reads "NOT HOMELESS, NEED BOOBS," and she said she made $46 in two hours (the bikini and motorcycle probably help...). 

Lance is a single mom, bartender, and university student, according to The Huffington Post. She told Ohio news channel WKYC that she won't leave her spot until she's raised the $5,000 she needs to cover her operation -- which she says will "help improve her self-esteem."

Lance isn't the first to woman to use a controversial way to pay for breast implants. The website MyFreeImplants.com allows women to share photos and chat with men who can then donate to their implant fund. Yeah, think about that one for a bit.
