    I think they must have got away by Shanks's pony. (Think about it........!)

    The bowl was stuffed with leafy branches and smuggled out by some Japanese tourists in a camo-khazi exercise.

    If found caught and guilty, presumably the miscreants will be held at Her Majesty's convenience.

    I must admit I thought the design very up to date but my wife, like most women, viewed it as a period piece.
    If it was hallmarked then of course the date it was ass-ayed could be determined.

    Not so much hallmarked as skidmarked.

    Amazingly, it's reported as solid and 18ct. It will be very soft at that, but certainly not fragile.

    Yes, a veritable stream of gold(en wordplay).

    It'll have been heavy, so I doubt the thief could have done it without some acisterns.

    You'd swear it'd have to weigh it at more than 1m if was a truly solid 18k gold bog?

    You would indeed. It would also weigh a ton, gold has 2x the density of lead. I suspect it's like the stainless steel bogs you see that are only "solid" in the sense of being one single piece of one single material.

    Apparently the hospitals that cater for vastly obese people have to have special reinforced stainless steel bogs because earthenware is only safe to 30-odd stone and of course it fails catastrophically. Christ, that would be a catastrophe. Stainless ones are stronger and will of course bend before breaking, so they are safe.

    Obviously thieves into heavy metal. Wonder if they'll ever face the music.
