John Lennon’s Rotten Tooth for Sale for $16K

John Lennon's Rotten Tooth for Sale for $16KA rotten tooth John Lennon had removed in the '60s hits the auction block next week. The reserve price has been set at $16,000. NBC New York reports:

The biter was handed down to Dorothy "Dot" Jarlett when she worked as Lennon's housekeeper at his home in Surrey, according to her son Barry. Jarlett was employed between 1964 and 1968, when giving teeth to the help was all the rage among the world's most famous rockers.

"She was very close with John, and one day whilst chatting in the kitchen, John gave my mother the tooth (he had been to the dentist to have it removed that day) and suggested giving it to my sister as a souvenir, as she was a huge Beatles fan," he said. "It has been in the family ever since."

Ah yes, the longstanding tradition of family heirloom rich people body relics. Above, an image of the tooth in question. Somewhere, Lindsay Lohan is counting her teeth, trying to figure out which one she lost. [NBC-NY, CNN, image via Splash]

I wouldn't buy it unless it came with a certificate of authenticity. On a related note, actor Corey Haim once tried to sell his tooth on ebay until the listing got pulled. I wonder what he was gonna buy with the money

Btw, the subject line makes it sound like this thread is about a kilo of spoiled coke.

Maybe you could scrape out some DNA and clone him.

Now I am reminded about the toilet bowl cleaning thread. This is a bloody trainwreck (the tooth). He could have used a lot of bleach.

is true, make a Lennon Library.....science buddies did something similar to come up with the re-constructed DNA sequence of Y. pestis which caused the Black Death. Science buddies scraped out the dental pulp of teeth dug up from a mass grave outside of London www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurr...ull/nature10549.html ......it is all there in the Materials & Methods
