    Solid gold toilet worth $1.25 million stolen from palace in Britain

    [​IMG]

    I guess what makes this story funny is that first, someone actually created and built a solid-gold toilet. Second, someone actually bought a solid-gold toilet. Third, someone actually stole a solid-gold toilet.

    I wonder where would the thieves go to fence such an item? Or would they just melt it down for the gold?

    Normally I discourage theft, but in this case, for some reason, I don't feel offended by the theft... Probably because it was such a stupid idea to make a toilet out of gold to begin with.

    A three minute limit to use the toilet?
    If I got the opportunity to use a solid gold toilet I'm going to take a dump which will take longer than three minutes-It would be art.

    these are common in gulf countries , infact they would rate this one cheap coz its only 18 carat ...beneath their taste. A sheikh would probably have this in his driver's toilet.

    I can't decide what's more disappointing. The fact that someone stole the toilet or that someone made a solid gold toilet in the first place.

    Clearly, one has to give a crap in order to make a gold toilet.

    I'm guessing it's perhaps a trophy. Because, really, you can't pawn that because it is too specific, and how would someone ever come across a lump of gold that big?
    Regardless, either way, I don't care because that story alone is hilarious. :D

    If the thief is found... I wonder whether the judge will be able to order a sentence with a straight face.

    Point,. The missing loo is valued anywhere between £1.5 and £4.8 million. I am guessing its either the loo artist (joke there) on a tax fiddle or the (ex)owners talking to the insurance company*

    *Assuming it is insured and the british tax payer is not made to cough up for a replacement

    Another point, has anyone ever felt the weight of gold??? How did the theives manage to move a bulky and cumbersome 230 lbs of gold?

    It may have been an inside job. I suspect the Ty-D-Bol Man was looking for ways to sweeten his retirement.

    I guess rather chilly in the morning... perhaps something of a wake-up call.
