Published Jun 08, 2009It seemed impossible but Kiss bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has surpassed shock-rocker G.G. Allin as the sickest musician ever. Yes, it's difficult to overshoot a guy that used to be the musical monkey, shoving bananas up his bum, pooping onstage and tossing it around, yet after Simmons's latest endeavour all of that seems kind of blasé. At least Allin didn't try to sell it.
As Simmons recently revealed, he has sold a kidney stone online. What's worse was that it was of his own volition, apparently coming up with the idea while passing it through his body. A kidney stone is the solid formation of urinary minerals, by the way. It's literally a chunk of pee.
Perhaps the only saving grace to this story is that Simmons was kind enough to "give a piss" for charity. The funds were donated to an undisclosed organization. "I passed a kidney stone and I put it on eBay for charity," he told the Today Show. "I got $15 grand."
Come to think of it, while that's kind of gross, what's worse is that someone out there had enough disposable income to buy the thing. They actually wanted it and they're expecting it in the mail so they can show it off.
