    Solid gold toilet worth $1M and titled 'America' stolen

    An 18-karat solid gold toilet worth more than $1 million was stolen early Saturday morning from a British palace that was the birthplace of Winston Churchill, police said.

    The toilet, an artwork, was reportedly offered at one point by the Guggenheim Museum for the White House.

    It was nearer £5 million in value and was a plumbed in working toilet.

    The police have nothing to go on.:smuggrin:

    I for one would not like to use a toilet if gold. For that business I perform porcelain.

    One of the other articles I read about this mentioned that visitors to the museum could "make a 3 minute appointment to use this piece of art."
