Shatner’s Kidney Stone

File under Truth Is Stranger:

William Shatner recently passed a kidney stone … and put it up for auction. It gets better. The winning bidder, GoldenPalace.com, paid $25,000 for the rock, which Shatner said “Was so big you’d want to wear it on your finger.” Proceeds from the sale were donated to charity.

This is a bold new addition to our fleet,” GoldenPalace.com Chief Executive Officer Richard Rowe said in a statement. The money will go to Habitat for Humanity, which builds houses for the needy.

GoldenPalace.com is the same online gambling outfit that last year purchased the right to name a newly discovered monkey species, and bestowed the hapless creature with the name “GoldenPalace.com monkey.”

  1. Isn’t GoldenPalace.com the same crowd who were the successful winners of the piece of toast with the image of Jesus ?

  2. GoldenPalace.com has taken the StarTrek motto to heart: “To boldly go where no website has gone before.”

    Of course, in this case their prize HAS been somewhere before … eeeuuuuwwwww!
