Is there any depth to which auction houses won’t plummet?
The answer, if you’re an Elvis Presley fan, is no, judging from the bizarre and morbid Kingly artifacts that have gone under the hammer in recent years.
The Beatles aren’t immune to such lurid activities either—John Lennon’s toilet is the latest item to be auctioned off.
It was expected to fetch up to £1,000 at the 33rd annual Beatles Convention in Liverpool. But it went way over that price - an overseas investor paid £9,500 for the item.
It is not known who the scatological buyer was.
I could do with a bit of extra spending-money on my forthcoming Bali trip. Any bid on a dual-flush well-balanced fully-depreciated ex-accountant's toilet?
