reality bites

This is ripe for spoofs and jokes galore. William Shatner managed to sell off his kidney stone to oddity collector for $25,000. The cheque will be made payable to Habitat for Humanity. Shatner's stone will share space with other gems [sic] like a partly-eaten grilled cheese sandwich that is said to bear a striking resemblance to the Virgin Mary, and a home pregnancy test stick reputedly used by Britney Spears. In addition to predictable puns like leaving no stone unturned in charity, going where no kidney stone has gone before, Shatner adds his quotables that are sometimes hilarious (If you subjected it to extreme heat, it might turn out to be a diamond) and sometimes horrifying (The stone was so big you'd want to wear it on your finger).

Wilson Pickett, famous for his rendition of Land of 1000 Dances (the refrain from which became famous in Ini Kamoze's Here comes the Hotstepper), Mustang Sally (with that really cool scream), an interesting cover of Hey Jude and yet another contribution to the long list of Hey Joe covers passed away today at 64.

And here's a really cool UK ad {be patient, let the Flash movie buffer completely} for the Honda Civic that features a soundtrack done completely with human voices. [courtesy: Boing Boing]
