This is a question Obscure Memorabilia

At home my other half has a broken piece of a piano. Just a single hammer from a broken piano. And yet this twisted bit of wood and metal is a piece from the piano that they flung in the TV series Northern Exposure. We've also got some gardening tools from the first series of Big Brother.

What wierd stuff do you own that has a history?

A can of snails
with their shells in a clear plastic tube extending from the top.
I gave it as a Christmas present to my sister in law, who gave it back to me the following year.
It went out of date in 2002.

A pair of wooly gloves with the utility mark (cc41) on them.

Tom Jones' sweaty knickers....
My mum is a bit of a Tom Jones fan (freak!) and back in the 70's she went to one of his shows and sat with the rest of the randy old women near the front row, spending most of the time screaming her guts out at him.

Throughout the show, knickers and bras were landing on the stage (as they do) and Mr Jones picked up a pair of knickers, mopped his brow with them, and threw them into the crowd.

In the rugby style scrum that ensued, my Mum claimed the knickers.

And she now keeps them in a plastic bag, in the freezer to preserve his sweat.

Handy if they ever needed to clone him.

I know it's something I don't personally own, but I think they will get passed down to me as a legacy.....

When i
was in Rio De Janeiro, i bought a telescope from the top of sugar loaf mountain. There were three telescopes for sale that used to be stationed aorund the edges for sightseeing tourists. Each one was different. It wasnt until a little while later until i discovered that the telescope i had bought was that that Roger Moore looked through in the bond flick Moonraker. It even had the same dent he rested his hand on int he movie. I was happy :)

I have
A signed letter from Alan Shearer personally thanking me for sending him a lucky silver boot.
The boot in question had been clumsily fashioned from KitKat foil during one boring lunch hour at work. This was sent to him accompanied by a letter explaining that the boot would bring him magical scoring powers, but would he not mind not using it when he played against Leeds Utd. From that day forth I think he scored against Leeds every time he played against them...the bastard.

I have....
A poster signed by Jon Pertwee, which I was insanely proud of at the time

I also have a little chunk of the Hacienda knocking about somewhere, as I used to work with the bloke who organised the demolition. The whole place is now luxury apartments. It is quite tragic.

Rod Hull
I stole a rod from Hull.
I once wrote to the Fast Show to suggest some characters - they kindly declined my Johnny Fart-pants and Busta Gonads ripoffs, and sent me their autographs instead!

Ah, I also have a letter from Buckingham Palace refusing me the job of Footman. Or, I suppose Footwoman, in fact. Such creamy stationary.
