Always knew Jack was quite arrogant, but the owners will get a hefty price for the chairs. Bet they come up with others items to sell after they see the selling price!
Silverware - toilet seat - and .......
sheets, with and without - egads!
It is a sad commentary on the celebrity crazed society of groupies that America has become. Imagine any other country selling off a movie actor's sauce-stained chairs! You can't--only in America.
Thanks Larry! Just had idea for a new topic "Only in America"
Actually I think that serves him right.
If he can't be bothered to care for other peoples property that he uses and even clean up after himself, then he should be rewarded with publicity of his slobbery being auctioned off to any old freak who wants to buy it.
Interesting that you all seem to accept the story unquestioningly.
Whatever happened or didn't happen, the sellers seem to have an interest in the story being believed, and seem to be primarily interested in making a buck from their peripheral contact with a Hollywood legend.
If they had not generated this publicity-producing story could they have garnered any interest in their chair(s) by merely asserting that JN had sat in them?
Perhaps he IS responsible for stains, or maybe someone who visited while he was there, stained one or more chairs. However, there is nothing in the story indicating that the owners first sought reimbursement from JN for cleaning or even replacing the chair(s).
To me the giveaway was that the owners hired a Washington publicist.
Stars, famous people, sports figures etc are constantly finding that
people that they come into contact with are looking for some angle, any angle, to make money from that contact.
I know much about things in Omaha - story or not much is true.
If you know more why don't you tell us?
