The Great Paperclip Caper

Earlier this year, I blogged about Kyle MacDonald, who was attempting, through a series of transactions, to trade a red paperclip for a house. Well, as of today, he's found success! Exactly one year after he began this adventure, Kyle has sucured a house in my home province. The people of Kipling, Saskatchewan have traded a house on Main St. in the small town for a movie role.

Incidentally, pretty much everyone thought he was crazy when he traded the one year rent-free in Phoenix for the day with Alice Cooper, and crazier still when he traded that for the Kiss snowglobe. But never underestimate the eccentric tastes people have - Corbin Burnsen offered a role in his movie because he's one of the world's biggest collectors of snow globes. And now a resident of Kipling will have a role in a movie being filmed this fall.

This gets my vote as one of the best stories of the year.

That's pretty awesome. I bet if he hangs on to that, and throws in perhaps a get out of jail free card he could get a nice bungalow on Marvin Gardens. Then he could work his way up to the Boardwalk!
