Marilyn Manson is well known for being a little bit odd.
This year, for example, he’s built a robot girlfriend, is getting ready to tackle the world snake bath record and is due in court for allegedly spending his band members’ royalties on skeletons of Chinese children and men in wheelchairs. However, if the shock rocker’s latest claims are to be believed, Manson’s innate weirdness is perhaps genetic.
Mr Manson claims his mother, Barb Warner, keeps his foreskin (which the singer parted company with in 1969) in a jar and likes to “wave it around” at family gatherings.
“We’re hoping to sell it at Sotheby’s one day,” says Manson.
