    Lee Harvey Oswald coffin up for sale

    This is certainly one of the strangest news articles I've ever read.

    A Los Angeles auction house said on Tuesday it would sell the simple pine coffin in which Oswald was buried for almost 20 years.

    Bidding will start at $1,000 (640), but the item is expected to fetch strong interest from museums and collectors of presidential memorabilia when it goes under the hammer on Dec. 16.

    "There's just a lot of interest in Kennedy and anything to do with his assassination," said Laura Yntema, auction manager at Santa Monica, California-based Nate D. Sanders.

    Maybe whoever has the winning bid can gift it to Elvis.

    I hope at least there is an autograph from Oswald to verify in is real.

    He didn't deserve a fresh coffin.
