Weren’t we just talking about this? In the wake of the news about the virtual concert lighters for the iPhone, disgust ranged widely. Personally, I was enraged by the very existence of a virtual lighter, while others couldn’t believe the nerve of KISS frontman Gene Simmons, to put the KISS logo on it and have the temerity to charge money for the product.
As if we all didn’t have enough proof of Gene’s inability to say no to a licensing deal, now we have this, as reported on Blabbermouth.
"Yep. For all of you who have always wanted to pee on my face!!! Now you can.
"A&E has put 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' urinal cakes [see photo below] throughout the country, featuring my face on the cakes. They're in most bathrooms. Now, for those of you who need detail = all you need to do is point your tool into the urinal, hit the 'cake' with your flow and don't be surprised if the urinal cake talks back to you!!!
"And please, leave the urinal cake in the pee hole for others to enjoy.
"Reports have come in that some of you have been stealing 'em. If so, kindly remember to wash 'em before you take 'em home."
When I read this, I don’t even think I flinched. I didn’t blink. I didn’t say anything. I might not even have breathed for a few seconds. I understand being a greedy old man who’s addicted to fame and money, but there must at some point be a line or self-respect that can’t be crossed. Or, maybe not.
Live Loud, and Live Dignified.
