Case of the Missing Dead Head


Here’s another story that’s impossible for me to ignore. Someone has gone and lifted Jerry’s porcelain throne!

SONOMA, California (AP) — The long, strange trip continues for Jerry Garcia’s toilet. Police say the Grateful Dead leader’s commode was stolen recently from a driveway along with three other toilets and a bidet.

Garcia’s salmon-colored toilet was the subject of a legal battle before it was finally moved to Sonoma, to await shipment to a Canadian casino. Last month, Koltys sold Garcia’s toilet for $2,550 to online casino Goldenpalace.com, which planned to use it as part of a traveling marketing exhibit. The casino is offering a $250 reward for its return.

Koltys said Friday the toilet once stood in Garcia’s master bathroom. “It would have been his personal head,” he said. – – from this article on CNN

It’s hard to speculate exactly where the toilet has found a home, but I picture a 3 foot bong, a half eaten pan of ganja brownies, and a couple of beat-up copies of High Times magazine.

So, I’m sorry, if bathroom humor is the theme of the day, then it is my doodie duty to play along…
