    Golden Palace does it again
    NEW YORK (AP) - Online casino Golden Palace has spilled $5,001 for Britney Spears' alleged home pregnancy test. "It's hard to put a price on Britney Spears' urine," Golden Palace spokesman Drew Black told The Associated Press Wednesday.

    Golden Palace says it purchased the test from Ottawa radio station Hot 89.9, which insists the test was retrieved from the trash outside Spears' Los Angeles hotel room months ago. The station didn't leak news of the test until Spears and husband Kevin Federline revealed her pregnancy to the public last month.

    "We don't know for certain, of course," said Black. "Obviously, it's her alleged pregnancy test. I wasn't there when she took the test."

    Golden Palace saw some buzz potential in the baby-making analyzer.

    "When we saw this particular item was up for grabs, we knew it was something we wanted to have to add to the collection of oddities we've amassed over the past several months," said Black.

    Other off-the-wall items owned by Golden Palace include a sandwich resembling the Virgin Mary, a Doritos chip that looks like the Pope's hat and a haunted cane.

    Black said Golden Palace is looking into going on tour with the out-of-the-ordinary objects. Last month, the online casino paid $15,100 to a Connecticut woman to name her newborn GoldenPalace.com.

    Surely I must have something around the house that the Golden Palace would want to buy. One of my son's poopy diapers had an amazing resemblence to Elvis...think they'll buy it?

    Okay, I'd be willing to have a 'name my dog' auction, but 'name' my child, jeeese how mercenary.

    I wonder what they'd pay for a 'name my kidney' auction. You know, to open me up and tattoo a name on my kidney. That's gotta be worth $25K, don't you think?

    I have the amazing ability to pee in perfect cursive. Do you think they will pay me to tag Golden Palace on every sidewalk with my golden shower.

    This is my favorite:

    http://www.goldenpalaceevents.com/au...gpmonkey01.php

    They paid $650,000 to name a new species of monkey "GoldenPalace.com Monkey"

    They've even got a website dedicated to it:

    Or at least a serious biatch slapping. If he turns out to be a future serial killer, does the casino get a refund?

    Hopefully it's a girl so she can go by Goldie. I don't think that nickname will work too well for a boy!

    I don't like Golden Palace. They are even on my blacklist for the gambling affiliate site I am working on. No way I will affiliate with a casino who buy the rights on baby name or steal cash from casino members(yes they did in the past and don't bother now they are rich).

    Anyway, affiliate with a casino that everyone know is useless, they can type goldenpalace.com in their browser easily.

    Must think of something I have of value to them, goodness only knows that I have nothing of value to me.

    Ya think a signed manuscript of a book by WWII's most famous hooker is worth anything?

    a little late on the reply but...

    Black said Golden Palace is looking into going on tour with the out-of-the-ordinary objects. Last month, the online casino paid $15,100 to a Connecticut woman to name her newborn GoldenPalace.com.

    ...at least no one would forget its name. Plus a great convo starter.

    What's it cost for a legal name change? I have to admit that it's a little tasteless to earn money off your newborn, but if they can do a name change in a couple years for $1000 or so.... put the $14K difference in the bank and let the cash grow. Would be a nice way to pay for a college education 18 years from now, particularly if the family is low income and would have no other means.

    Proof positive that there are a lot of genuine, 100% idiots out there! I view Golden Palace as taking advantage of these underprivileged individuals, whose desire for money and fame (if you can call it that) outweigh their intelligence and sense of decency.

    Wonder what they'll do with Spears waste? Put it up on the mantle next to Grandma's ashes?

    They already did what they wanted to do with it... get cheap publicity. The test cost them $4000 or so, but it probably got them many tens of thousands of free advertising in the news.

    Here is a free tip for anyone that wants to make a couple of Thousands $'s from Golden Palace.

    If you live near an Airport, sports stadium or even near a place where there are many open air events like concerts, etc.

    Call Golden Palace and tell them that you're willing to paint their GoldenPalace.com logo on your roof for $xxx,xxx.xx amount of money.

    Don't think about it for too long, or someone else will do it first and steal my free idea. The benefits for GP, is that millions of people will see their GP logo on your roof almost everyday.

    How many airplanes, helicopters, air balloons, the Good Year Blimp and even some UFO's, cross over your airspace everyday?

    And if you are the first one to call them with that idea and they agree on your price......

    Then look at some of the benefits that you might get out of the deal:

    You will get a good chunk on Money.
    You will be famous for awhile.
    You can put your own sites logo on your cars and park those next to your house, that way every time that someone see the GP logo on your roof, they will also see your sites logo for free.

    Think about it!

    You must act now, before someone else beat you to it.

    When You get Richer and Famous, just remember who give you the idea.

    Sal.
