How Much for a Lock of Shakespeare?

The Guardian reported this week that a locket “containing what is believed to be Jane Austen’s hair” is going to be auctioned off. Hmmm. I thought I would make a bid. Will $5.25 do it? Apparently not. Bids for the strands of hair are expected to reach more than £5,000 — or $9,812 in U.S. dollars.

Then again, we don’t know for sure? Maybe it’s last week’s leavings from a London beauty salon?
