11. King David bought his wife with 200 Philistine foreskins.
"..and David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full number to the king, that he might be the king's son-in-law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife." 1 SAM 18:27

I don't have a dog, or a foreskin, in this fight and don't really give a rip, but it is amusing that people are still squabbling over foreskins 3000 years later.
