J.D. Salinger is crankily turning over in his grave. A well-known memorabilia and collectibles dealer who has stalked Salinger items for years is asking for $1 million on Ebay for a toilet where the very private author did very private things. If you decide that you must have this vital part of Salinger's life, be forewarned: The toilet does not come with a seat or lid. But before you complain about having to shit standing up, the Ebay listing mentions the manuscripts Salinger left to his wife, with the selling point of "Who knows how many of these stories were thought up and written while Salinger sat on this throne!" What's not mentioned is that the $1 million price tag includes every remaining ounce of the late author's dignity. (Via newsobserver.com)
