The king's platter is for sale. No, it's not a heapin' heppin' of fried catfish, it's the big guy's record player going up for bid in Cornwall (of course it's in Cornwall), UK. The Beeb is all over this and ran an article. Apparently the (American) King gave it to a German woman when he was staying up all night doing speed in the cold for the U.S. Army. She had helped Vernon with some translations. As you can see below, it's completely bad-ass in its own right. So get over there and buy the thing like you got sense. They think it will fetch £2000, which is like a trillion dollars.
