'Author JD Salinger's toilet' put on sale for $1m

A toilet described as once having belonged to US author JD Salinger has been put on sale on the online auction site eBay for $1m (£644,000).

The vendor says he obtained the "used toilet commode" from a couple who now own the former home of the Catcher in the Rye author.

It comes "uncleaned and in its original condition", the ad for it states.

"Who knows how many of [his] stories were thought up and written while Salinger sat on this throne!", it adds.

The toilet comes with a letter from Joan Littlefield, attesting that the toilet was removed during renovations to her and her husband's house in Cornish, New Hampshire, formerly owned by the reclusive author.

She writes that they knew all the workmen who installed the toilet decades ago when Salinger had work done on the house.

There have been a number of bids on the item.

Salinger died in January, aged 91.

His most famous work, The Catcher in the Rye, has sold tens of millions of copies.

The tale of adolescent alienation has become one of the most influential American novels of the modern era since it was first published in 1951.

He became disillusioned with the publishing industry and moved to Cornish where he withdrew from society.

It comes "uncleaned

Now just what proof do you have that there's not a layer of Littlefied "thinking" time on there. No offense, but.. and really would you move away and not give or have someone come in and give the whole house a good cleaning?

Already had several bids on it too huh?

wtf hmm... Trying to think, whos potty would I pay money for to have???

I'm just wondering how "uncleaned" they mean. Do they mean they didn't clean it or do they mean it hasent been cleaned? sick

Uncleaned? Ack!

Mind you, I do know a lady who bought a pair of Captain Sensible's used underpants on ebay and then framed them sick
