His chest hair in younger days
I may be a tad cynical, but you don’t suppose this was done simply to garner publicity for an aging singer most people had forgotten about, do you? Definitely one of the goofiest stories to come out in a while.

Tom Jones Insures His Chest Hair For $7M

Tom Jones did something very unusual. The ‘It’s Not Unusual” singer has insured his chest hair for almost $7 million.

Although the 67-year-old singer’s management has denied the reports saying Jones has been “working far too hard in the recording studio” for trivial things, the reports has been confirmed by Lloyd’s of London, a distinguished insurance house.

“Admittedly, this is one of the most obscure requests I’ve had – but I still came up with a wording that addressed the need,” underwriter John Thomas says.

Lloyd’s of London has insured several celebrities’ body parts including the legs of Fred Astaire and Heidi Klum, hands of Liberace and fingers of Keith Richards. And most famously, Jennifer Lopez’s butt.

    What’s that, a dollar a hair?

    Damn! Why didn’t I think of insuring my head hair? Right now, I could have a fortune to rival the fortune of Bill (the Micro$oft) Gates!

    It ain’t unusual …

    [pardon the pun]

    In his younger days, Jones’s chest hair seemed to have a peculiar gravitational attraction for women’s panties. I wonder if that is also covered under this policy. Inquiring minds want to know…

    #6, Gary,

    I hope you realize I’m holding you responsible for the coffee on my keyboard and shirt.

    The hair on my back is my own responsibility.

  7. Gary, the dangerous infidel says:

    Mister Catshit, as luck would have it, I’m insured against liability for spontaneous coffee spills. I’ll send you a claim form 😉

    Tom Jones… Jeebus, what a joke. Wales still owes the rest of the world big-time for foisting that joker off on us. Anthony Hopkins, Dick Burton, Donna Lewis and Catherine Zeta-Jones don’t make up completely for that one…

    I once heard the best description of him ever – wish I could get it exactly right, but anyway it described him as something like having ‘all the suavity and savoir faire of a Great Dane cornering a Pekingese.’

    Who the hell is Tom Jones and what is soooo incredible about this chest hair of his?!?! Hahaha! Thats just crazy!

  12. TIHZ_HO says:

    #12 brianna – Surely you heard some of his classics that Tom C recorded, like…

    “She’s a PC”, “Its not a Unix, Love”, “What’s New Plug n’ Play?” “I’ll Never Use Vista, Never” “Without Bill” and who can forget “The Blue, Blue Screen of Death”?

    This is a very creepy thing. He should have his lack of good taste insured.

    I guess he can get into trouble for insurance fraud for plucking, waxing or shaving. Electrolisis would get him locked up for good. His music makes me ill.

  14. McCullough says:

    He looks like he is turning into a SMURF.

  15. Mister Catshit says:

    I’ve heard some recent Tom Jones. Not your momma’s Tom Jones to be sure. Now that he is no longer being run by the record company marketing agency, he is showing us what he is truly capable of.

    Hanging around with the likes of Van Morrison has given him some new perspective. And the guy can sing, though I still wouldn’t put out for one of his concerts.
