The Lyin In Winter

New York - Last worn by Bert Lahr in the 1939 movie classic The Wizard Of Oz the big cat outfit was bought today for $3m as a seasonal gift.

Sources close to the auctioneer's gavel said the buyer is believed to be the charitable arm of the Association of United States Attorneys for the Sovereign Distict of New York.

The NY lawyers' group is famous for its festive present giving to public figures deserving of 'so much more' than a gong.

Made of real lion hide and adorned by masses of golden human hair curling stuff - uh, curls! - the get-up has long been a favorite of top NY prosecutor Preet Bhrarara.

Last month Bhrarara turned down the chance to serve as Barack Obama's Attorney General on account of having bigger fish to fry than the President's imaginary foes.

Meanwhile the Tin Man's somewhat rusted outfit failed to meets its reserve of $500,000 in today's sale after bidders agreed Joe Biden's 'just not worth it' even in the cause of a few cheap laughs.

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