    A gambling website is betting that Michael Jackson's hair will make a worthy roulette ball.

    OnlinegamblingPal.com bought up a chunk of it for $10,871 and explained their transformative plans for the hair with a pun as shameful as their purchase. "Together, we can ensure Michael Jackson continues to rock and 'ROLL' forever," a statement on the website said.

    More creepy than the idea of a gambling site converting a dead man's hair into game paraphernalia, is that the sellers collected the hair sample from the Carlyle Hotel in New York after the pop icon stayed there, Rolling Stone reported.

    "The ball itself will be made to the highest professional standards, ensuring it will be eligible for use at any licensed casino's roulette table," OnlineGamblingPal's statement said. "Indeed, considering Jackson dedicated his life to entertaining millions, the prospect of this very special ball captivating crowds at roulette tables seems like a fitting use for it."
