Because there's a Cattelan show on,
a gold throne your urine could flow on
     was in Blenheim, till this:
     someone’s taken the piss,
and the coppers have nothing to go on.

The golden loo is gone.

A solid 18-karat gold toilet, titled “America” by its creator, Maurizio Cattelan, was stolen early Saturday from an exhibit at Blenheim Palace, the Oxfordshire birthplace and family home of Winston Churchill.

The toilet was part of a larger exhibit featuring Mr. Cattelan’s work that began on Thursday.
