I speak, of course, of William Shatner’s kidney stone, that self-same Stone that fetched upwards of $25,000, as reported just a few days ago. The happy owner is the GoldenPalace.com online casino, with the proceeds earmarked for donation to Habitat for Humanity.

- Leonard Nimoy’s ear wax. [Given Spock’s huge ears, supplies should be more than sufficient to meet demand.]
- Mick Jagger’s nasal mucus.
- Michael Jordan’s toenail clippings.
Britney Spears’s used tampons.[SOLD]
- Catfish’s hemorrhoid.
