A shopping list written by John Lennon has been sold at auction for £1.6m.

The A5 piece of paper was discovered in Lennon's pocket after he was gunned down in 1980. It has been reported that the list is still blood stained to this day, after Lennon "suffered a paper cut when writing it."

The lucky winning bidder has been described as "Lennon's Number One Fan" but preferred to remain anonymous. Our source on the inside however, can reveal that the buyer of the paper was a "Mr. P. Mc."

"Mysterious Mr. P. Mc" took it upon himself to visit his local Shell Garage and actually buy the shopping that Lennon intended to in 1980 and deliver it to Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono.

Ono, released a statement to the press:
"I am overjoyed by the gesture. I have waited nearly thirty years for Sugar Puffs and soap."

Ono's joy however, was short lived.

As she received the carrier-bag, the mysterious shopper dressed in black stated, "That'll be four pound twenty, love."

In related news: A painting reviewed by John Lennon is also on sale at auction this Friday. It is expected to reach £3.4m despite Lennon describing it as, "Not very good."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
