WWW: Expensive Old Hair

In this edition of Weird World Wednesday, I submit to you an excerpt from a Forbes article titled Elvis' hair sells for $15K at Chicago auction:
A clump of hair believed to have been trimmed from Elvis Presley's head when he joined the Army in 1958 has sold for $15,000 at a Chicago auction house.

Also among the 200 Elvis-related items up for grabs at the Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago on Sunday was a shirt that once belonged to the King which sold for $52,000.

The buyer of the hair paid $15,000 plus an additional $3,300 in auction house fees.
In the words of a cliche it seems that some folks have more money than sense.. and don't you think that hair is pretty gross? Wonder what the shirt looked like?


  1. It doesn't make sense to me to buy the hair (or the shirt) even if I could prove that it was Elvis' hair, which, I heard, has not been done.
