    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    Valued at £1m and was in use as a functioning lavatory. Must be gold plated- solid gold would collapse under some of the specimens you see these days.

    The Guardian piece includes the line,

    'Blenheim palace is the ancestral seat of the Duke of Marlborough.'

    According to The Telegraph,

    'The piece is called "America", and had had been plumbed into the water system so that visitors could fully engage with the artwork, as long as they obeyed a three-minute time slot.'

    Had a wee in that when it was in the Guggenheim. Warm to the touch :)

    Was a No.2 allowed or did they only permit No.1s?

    Do police have anything to go on?

    Guess the thief was on a bit of a U bender. Hope the police flush him out but he's probably feeling much more effluent now.

    Since it is Thames Valley Police I expect DCI Morse will be hot on the scent.

    Quoting from the BBC news page:

    Speaking last month, Edward Spencer-Churchill - half-brother of the current Duke of Marlborough - said he was relaxed about security for the artwork.

    "It's not going to be the easiest thing to nick," he said.

    He also said, "Despite being born with a silver spoon in my mouth I have never had a s*** on a golden toilet, so I look forward to it."

    I guess that answers Dec's question, although maybe this option was not available for the hoi polloi. The three minute time limit may be a consideration there too.

    I dunno, a Phall and five pints of Guinness the night before and I reckon three minutes is about five times as long as you'd need.

    That’s quite a run of puns Mike

    This could explain the toilet's disappearance. It wasn't stolen. It dissolved.

    I expect the boys in blue are pulling in all their stool pigeons for a lead on this one.
