Crappy memorabilia

A toilet that once belonged to John Lennon was sold for £9,500 (about $14,700) at an auction in Liverpool on Saturday, Reuters reported. Lennon had the blue-and-white porcelain commode removed from his home in Tittenhurst Park in Berkshire, in southern England, where he lived from 1969 to 1971; he gave it to a builder, John Hancock, telling him to “put flowers in it or something,” according to the auction catalogue. Mr. Hancock stored the toilet in his shed for 40 years, and on Saturday it was sold to an unidentified buyer as part of a sale of  memorabilia
