|The online casino GoldenPalace.com, famous for its madcap publicity stunts, has succeeded in buying a Jesus shaped dumpling from the online auction site eBay. The divine dumpling, which appears to depict the face of Christ on its surface, will boost the casino’s already impressive collection of quirky artefacts. |
GoldenPalace paid $1,775 to secure the dumpling from owner, Donna Lee of Toledo. “We’ll keep buying these items as long as people are interested in them,” Richard Rowe CEO of GoldenPalace.com explained. “Like the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich that we bought, the pierogi also bears a very distinct impression of a divine image. It’s obvious there’s huge interest in this item as the eBay auction page received nearly 50,000 visitors. The pierogi is the perfect addition to our collection, and people will be able to see it for themselves when we take our museum on tour.”
The site has been something of a trailblazer in grabbing headlines with its alternative approach to marketing, previous stunts include buying Pope Benedict’s old VW Golf, Britney’s used pregnancy test kit and a Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
