One Man’s Junk Is A Country’s National Treasure

Henry VIIISomeone is going to be really pissed when they realise the old wooden bed they dumped in a hotel car park in Chester is worth about 20 million pounds and is now one of the most valuable pieces of furniture in British history. The bed, which was recently sold at auction for £2,200, belonged to none other than Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. Haven’t got a clue who they were? They were Henry VIII’s parents, which means it is highly likely the serial widower and Catholic church meddler was conceived in it.

Want sauce with that?

    But how did they know it was that bed? Did it have markings or writing on it?

    How do I get in touch with the British museum? I have discovered that I’ve got King Richard’s bed warmer… I’ll happily let it go for say.. 3mil pounds.. It’s a crazy sale! It all must go!

    Ps I also have Jon Voight’s pencil. And his teeth marks are on it.
