This might seem kind of strange, but since I am such a poor person right now, I was wondering if there was any way I could actually make money from the cutting. I saw a video of this guy who had a little booth and people donated to cut one of his dreads off. I can see this as a kind of renewal where the community helps, but is this...cheezy? Unethical?
I just talked to my roommate who is having a monthly poetry reading outdoors (we're both poets). I could say, "Anyone who wants to donate money can cut off one of my dreads." Most of these people know me and would probably think it was fun.
Have anyone else done this or an online auction and what were the results?
