Gross Leftovers From the Fall of the House of Guccione

Last night we mentioned a creepy auction of the Plato's Retreat-era marble fixtures that adorned Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione's notorious apartment. Here, from the auction house's web site, is a visual taste of how the Gooch lived in his heyday.

Auctioneers hoped these marble toilets would go for up to $5,000 apiece; they sold for $200. If you bought these, please use a lot of bleach before you install them.

Now this is the kind of "art" you'd expect to see in the Gooch's pad. The auction house's web site describes them as "molded plastic with high releif [sic] neoclassical female busts with sun ray crowns." Yes, those are a lot of female busts.
