His cups runneth over

'Bout how much you think this thing's worth?

Gazette staff August 3rd, 2011

An Oklahoma man got some good news during an “Antiques Roadshow” taping in Tulsa when one of the PBS show’s appraisers valued a set of Chinese rhinoceros-horn cups to be worth between $1 million and $1.5 million.

The horny-cups are the most expensive find in the history of the show, according to the Washington Post, beating out an 18th century Qianlong Jade collection.

The cups’ owner, who understandably wished to remain anonymous, said, “I guess I won’t have to rely on Social Security anymore,” the Post reported.

Well, at least somebody now has a back-up plan for after the United States defaults. Meanwhile, we here at CFN are keeping our fingers crossed that our NASCAR glass tumblers we got in the mid-2000s will fetch us enough money to get through the winter.
