John Lennon`s loo up for grabs

London: Late English singer-songwriter John Lennon`s toilet will be among Beatles memorabilia to be auctioned next week.

The toilet may rake in a whopping 750 pounds to 1,000 pounds.

The auction will also include a rare mono copy of ‘Two Virgins’— an album Lennon recorded with wife Yoko Ono — that is expected to fetch at least 2,500 pounds.

The auction is also inviting bids for Lennon``s toilet from Tittenhurst Park, his Berkshire home between 1969 and 1972.

Lennon had asked builder John Hancock to keep the porcelain lavatory and "use it as a plant pot" after he had installed a new one.

It was stored in a shed at Hancock``s home for 40 years until he died recently.

"The toilet might be worth something, and it might not, but it is certainly one of the more unusual items we``ve sold," the Sun quoted Stephen Bailey, Beatles expert and auction organizer, as saying.
