(Newser) – You can buy some weird stuff at auctions, but this is arguably the weirdest: a pair of underwear that allegedly belonged to Queen Elizabeth II. "Baron" Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi, a Miami playboy, somehow came into possession of the decidedly unsexy panties more than 40 years ago after the Queen reportedly left them on a private plane during a 1968 visit to Chile. Now that he’s dead, his estate will auction them off. They are expected to go for around $9,000. TMZ has pictures.

“The Queen’s Knickers” would be a super name for a pub. See http://bit.ly/fI0eP4

Royal underwear? That’s nothing. Back in the mid- eighties a colleague of mine was an exchange officer assigned to an Australian airbase outside Sidney. One day the queen mother’s aircraft made a pit stop there. The ground crew serviced her private toilet and low and behold discovered a royal turd floating about (a floater). This turd was put in a jar, preserved with alcohol and placed on a prominent shelf in the Officers Club, so that every time an officer entered the club they would salute the Queen Mother. After a while the base commander got tired of the gag and had the royal turd properly disposed of.

Eeeewwwww. There is just so little coverage of the Queen's bathroom habits. For example, does she really let them rip, or are they just quiet little things. The Monarchy is so secretive.
