BANGOR, Maine -- A find in the garage of a recently deceased town drunk has recently been sold at auction for $82 million. The object-d'art is constructed from the carcass of the rare Balearic Islands Three-headed Sheep. These sheep were produced thousands of years ago by breeding continental domesticated sheep with the resident Balearic Lizard-legged Goat, producing a new breed of three-headed ovines.
The chair was custom made in 1755 by renowned furniture builder Silvern Bonobo of Marseilles for Duke Howie Mensch of Austria. When the family estate was overrun and razed by maddened commoners, much of the furniture and valuables were secreted away by bitter Welshmen on their way through Slovakia at the time.
