The world's most expensive diamond that was auctioned for a record price at Sotheby's was purchased by an ex-Brit tramp who moved to Paris and became a clochard, then moved to Switzerland and became a billionaire!
This is an amazing story of rags to riches of a mysterious, once upon a time tramp, who used to make his money by collecting empty booze bottles around Soho.
He then decided there was more money to be made from French empty booze bottles (the French booze much more than the Brits and it's less expensive?) so he moved to Paris and became a clochard.
After making enough money tramping around the streets of Paris and sleeping under the Eifel Tower, he moved his operation to Switzerland, invested his money in collecting, recycling European booze bottles and now is a multi-billionaire booze bottle recyclist with plants all over the world!
He felt the pink diamond had a particular sentimental value because the colour reminded him of all of the meths he once drank, BUUUUUURP!
He's off the meths now and just boozes pink champagne on ice surrounded by Russian beauties sucking on his ding-dong, what a life!
The moral of this news story is:
Don't give your f+++++g empty booze bottles to tramps and clochards, keep them, save them up and you too can become a multi-billionaire with a pink diamond?
