Hilarious List of Gosselin Freebies

I always suspected celebrities got free plastic surgery

I'm sure many of you are following the amazing marriage meltdown of Kate and Jon Gosselin, who are married and have 8 kids and are on the show Jon & Kate + 8. The show will soon be titled Jon & Kate + 8 - 1 because Us Weekly has loads of pictures and reports about Jon's affair with a 23 year old while Kate was away doing media tours and tending to her insane Flock of Seagulls haircut. There's also rumors that Kate is having an affair with her bodyguard, who looks like Peterman from Seinfeld. In any event, Us Weekly is reporting how fame and fortune have "changed" the pair and how they've become "obsessed" with getting free swag. Us includes a comprehensive list of all the free crap they've gotten:

Utah house rental (estimate: $5,000), ski lift tickets $72 for six days), ski school lessons ($140 per child)
- Upright piano, which they got rid of when they moved into their new $1.1 million home : $5,550-$6,350
- Violin: $100-$300
- Old house re-carperted
-Crayola Factory Tour: $90.00
-Teeth Whitening (for Jon & Kate): $1,310 (average price for 2 adults)
-Hair plugs (Jon): $5,200 (average cost)
-Sesame Street Place tickets: $509.50
-Day with Thomas the Tank Engine: $180.00
-Beach trip to North Carolina, house rental, Jeep tour
-Sight & Sound Christian theatre tickets: $236.00
-SkyBox at Phillies game
-LegoLand tickets: $550.00

Um, do you like how they just casually mention the hairplugs in the middle of this list and then specify "Jon" as opposed to Kate or one of the 5 year old sextuplets, just to clear up any confusion. I basically fell out of my chair.
