15 Grand for John Lennon's Toilet
Here's an auction you can take sitting down. A porcelain toilet owned by Beatle John Lennon while he lived in Berkshire, southern England, was sold at a Beatles memorabilia auction organized by the Beatles Shop in Liverpool. It was hammered for almost $15,000, around ten times its estimate.
It's lucky for the buyer that the toilet didn't end up in the dump. Shipping the object to the owner's home probably involves a big movement with lots of packing, otherwise, option number two would be carrying it on the plane. I guess you could use it as a large flower pot or a stool.
