KISS frontman Gene Simmons, who once boasted of having slept with some 4,500 women, denied that the caskets were sold in poor taste. "You wanna consider me a whore?" he retorted. "I say thank you -- at least a whore has the self-respect to tell you what she's going to cost beforehand, and that she won't do anal. Whores are honest businessladies!"
Simmons also pointed out that a waterproof, laminated steel Kiss Kasket could readily double as a handy beer cooler. "What happens if on Sunday afternoon you're having the guys over for a ball game and you want a drink?" he asked. "You should be able to open your Kiss Kasket and grab a cold one!"
