William Shatner's kidney: Where no man has gone before

by Kim Voynar, posted Nov 17th 2005 2:17PM

William ShatnerStar Trek alum William Shatner, who played sci-fi icon Captain James T. Kirk, wants his kidney stone back -- so he can auction it off on eBay. Shatner apparently thinks his kidney stone will appeal to fans who want the "ultimate piece of Star Trek memorabilia". I can pretty much guarantee you, if you're the type of Star Trek fanboy who would think it's really keen to have William Shatner's kidney stone in a jar next to all your unopened Star Trek collectible figures: this will never, ever, make you more appealing to the opposite sex.

Imagine: you actually have a date, and she (or he, let's not be presumptuous here) has actually come back to your sweet digs in mom's basement for a nightcap. Just as you swoop in to make your big move, your date spies The Jar on your shelf. "Um, what's that?" If you can think of a way to explain you are the proud owner of William Shatner's kidney stone in a way that still gets you laid, you're a better actor than he is.

Trafficking in human organs is indeed a federal felony in America, but a kidney stone is no more an organ of the human body than a pearl is the organ of an oyster. It wasn't Shatner who claimed that his kidney stone is "the ultimate Star Trek collectible." Here's the straight dope: a complete transcript of Shatner's interview on Jimmel Kimmel Live, with a video clip, via VRRRM... http://vrrrm.com/tv/Kimmel/05/ShatnerKimmel51114.php -------

CORRECTION: 5. honestly. If someone was able to purchase said stone. Do you not think the person who is crazy enough to do so AND get a date of any kind would only attract the people who would think owning a piece of Shatner would be interesting (and probably assist them in getting laid)?

Anyone ever see the movie "Slacker"(not SlackerS), where it had the one scene where the girl was trying to sell Madonna's papsmear?

A kidney stone is not an organ, but it certainly qualifies as human waste (very painful waste, too, from what I hear), and eBay doesn't allow that, either: http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/remains.html

A kidney stone is not a body part. It is a foreign object. That's why it has to be removed. He's not planning to auction his kidney.

Interesting Idea, Shatner. Too bad Ebay will close down your auction, because they don't allow the sale of body parts. Even removed ones.
