Cupid's Got a Gun...

Not sure what to get your loved-one for Valentines day? How about the window that Lee Harvey Oswald shot President Kennedy through? It's now up for sale on Ebay, having been passed down in the family of the owner of the Texas School Book Depository building, who had it removed from the building shortly after the assasination.

Sure, it's a bit pricey ($600,000 at the moment), but how can you put a price on the happiness of your loved one?

Coming next week on Ebay- the stitches from Lyndon Johnson's surgical scar.

Man, I always wanted those stitches. I also wanted that beagle he held up by the ears.

I have to get off those porn sites and start checking out ebay more often.

D'y'know, that's one thing that you Yankees have really perfected - the entrepreneurial spirit.

Down here we might've picked up a shell casing, a souvenir flag or a piece of congealed brain matter, but pulling out the window casing and keeping it is just sheer commercial genius.

Mike- I don't know about the rest of the beagle, but I'm betting the ears will show up pretty soon.

Joey- I have a 'watch' in for it, but apparently it is now being used by a member called "The Deciderator"

Anaglyph- welcome! Yes, we have an eye for turning just about anything into a money-making opportunity- if it hadn't happened down in Texas, we'd have pulled up the damned pavement, broken it up into chunks and mounted them in acrylic boxes at $39.95 each...
