I love news stories that are different:rolleyes: Wonder what Winston would have thought about his teeth been auctioned:D


A partial set of false teeth made for Sir Winston Churchill are to go under the hammer at an auction in Norfolk.

Its called recycling Ellie:biggrin:


Seriously tho what would someone do with his teeth:confused: its not like there anything to look at:rolleyes: Supose its only because of who they belonged to that makes them a item of value.

Exactly. To be honest I think auctioning something so intimate is disgusting.People will buy anything:2fun:

They are expecting to get around £5,000 for them. You would want to hope they fit for that price oz. Ask if you can "try before you buy" :2fun: :2fun: :2fun:
I think that's about $9000 Australian,in time they would probably make a good investment, I'll have to put in a Bid, can you imagine them as a conversation piece when holding parties at home.:biggrin:

Choppers Oz.

I reckon they'll be worth a punt.:)

You could always set them to chew on your dinner, while you're doing something else.

Just imagine the tobbaco stains on them though, coz he did smoke a lot of cigars.:eek: :2fun:

I remember a secondhand shop here, that sold everything including false teeth. I don't know how you got the right size, but I'll stick to the ones I have thank you very much.:eek: :eek:

I think he would have found it all rather amusing, i did i laughed my head off. that brings me to another story about an airport run and louis 16th poo, but that for another rainy day, true story though. sue xx ps im rubbish at roman numerals haha.

My Dad had a bad experience with lost knashers.......!!

He choked on a bit of food, which instigated him wanting to be sick. He ran to the downstairs loo, and lost his lunch.
He then realised a few milliseconds after flushing the loo that his top falsies were missing.
He ran outside and lifted the manhole cover......only to see his beloved choppers float past and disappear into oblivion.

He never bothered replacing them, and so 'Gummy' Gramps was born.:2fun:

He always laughed about the launching of 'H.M.S Choppers'.:biggrin:
