New York - New Yorkers and TRL fans are breathing a little easier
these days now that the citywide brainhunt is over. Brooklyn
resident Harold Henderson found Carson Daly's brain in an alley outside
of his apartment building, prompting Mayor Giuliani to call him a
hero and call an end to the brainhunt.
Henderson said, "We were out lighting some firecrackers off
when Frankie said, 'Hey, isn't that Carson Daly's brain you're stepping
on?' I didn't believe him, but when I picked it up, that's what it
was all right."
Henderson's hero status may be short lived, however, as he has passed
up the $10,000 reward for the brain and instead is auctioning it
off on eBay. At last check the bidding was up to $15,000 with
the top bid entered by a user named mjackson. MTV personality
Tom Green is rumored to be in on the bidding also, in an effort to
add to his MTV Body Part Collection which contains his recently removed
testicle, and Real World star Puck's middle finger.
Teenage girl fantasy, Carson
Daly has been without his brain since last September, when he lost
it during a wild party after the MTV Video Music Awards. Daly
had kept it a secret from the producers of the show, but had been
slowly deteriorating. The brain loss became public when an
obviously brainless Daly repeatedly pleaded, "Will someone please
help me find my brain," during a live broadcast of TRL.
This plea prompted the citywide brainhunt. Mayor Giuliani
said, "Carson Daly's brain is a very important asset to the
city, and we have been doing everything in our power to find it. I
just thank God he didn't lose his eyebrows. That would have
Even if Carson is unable to win the bidding war for his brain, the
producers of the show say that his job is not in jeopardy. Sources
inside the show have been quoted as saying that they noticed very
little difference between the brainless Daly and the brained one. They
also stated that this has no relation to the recent success of artists
such as Britney Spears and Eminem.
