I never knew! I may be asking for a rock for my birthday!

Welcome to DC, Carmendar. And thank you for sharing.

At $6.95 apice as sold in the link, I've probably thrown a thousand dollars worth of kitchen rocks as a child, just to hear them splash. I mean, who knew? I think I'll go out this summer and get me a kitchen rock.. I may have to pick up a few for my children as well.

Better to be a service rock than a pet rock, more fulfilling for the rock!

A rock could be both.

It's somewhat ironic. I've known people who could be described as rocks, and yet, they were not useful at all. But a real rock can be a gem (pun intended).

Probably could be rather uncomfortable.
It's one of these, Bob.
