    Shim Jae-cheol of U&I Impression said the firm had gold-plated about 80 to 100 umbilical cords a month since starting business in August, with prices ranging from 80,000 won to 100,000 won ($76 to $96). It also offers mail order.

    I think that is beyond being "plain old werid". I'm plain old werid and I'm not ging to keep the umbilical chord of my child. This is...... I really can't think of a word that describes it. Its like keeping the amputated arm of your child. Why would you do that?!? Why would anyone WANT an umbilical chord anyway?
     
  9. ewwwww. Why would someone want that, why not just bronze your childs first set of shoes?!?!?!? that seems like the more appropriate keepsake!!
