Queen Victoria's 52-inch Bloomers Sell for $10,000! Rapture Near! Video!
"A pair of Queen Victoria`s silk bloomers with a 52in (132cm) waist have been sold at auction for £6,200.
The knee-length knickers were one of a number of lots to go the hammer at the sale at Westernhanger Auctioneers near Folkestone in Kent.
The auctioneer said the overseas buyer of the very large underwear wished to remain anonymous."
I can understand a celebrity-obsessed freak plunking down nearly $10,000 for a pair of Kim Kardashian`s STD-encrusted thongs.
But to spend enough money to buy a decent used car for a pair of Queen Victoria`s 52-inch granny panties boggles the mind.
If I had bought those humongous drawers I would have remained anonymous also.
