The British third cousin of Aretha Franklin’s inauguration hat that inspired people to Photoshop pussies jumping through it (among other things) has sold on eBay for around $131,000. This is a little funny, because throw a minus sign before that number and that’s the exact amount in Duchess Fergie’s checking out! Expect Princess Bea to get a mysterious “change your password” e-mail from the address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The auction was set up over a week ago after Princess Beatrice realized that the shit her head wore to the Royal Wedding was the breakout star of the day. Princess Bea will donate the entire $131,000 to UNICEF and Children in Crisis. After the auction, PB released this short statement of words about the hat that looks like two flamingo sperms bowing before a 1970s toilet seat: “It has its own personality, and I am so happy that we have raised the most incredible amount of money and can make an even bigger change for the lives of some of the most vulnerable children across the world.”
That’s wonderful and everything, but can the palace please let me know when they’re going to put Prince Hot Ginge’s Philip Treacy-designed crotch cup on eBay?
