Kidney stones are about the most painful thing you can experience and live. Massachusetts Treasurer Steve Grossman, a Newton Democrat, passed a kidney stone during a 90 minutes campaign debate.

Word of Grossman’s stone — which has inspired a parody Twitter account — spread via the micro-blogging website, as did the news that he finally passed the stone, sometime during the awards ceremony.

“I’m grateful that I made it out, but I know some of my fellow stones remain confined. We must #FreeTheStones! #mapoli,”@grossmansstone tweeted Wednesday morning.
