CNN: The price was not the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West, as the Wizard of Oz demanded from Dorothy to send her back home to Auntie Em in the classic 1939 movie. Rather, someone this weekend paid $480,000 for Dorothy’s dress, according to Julien’s Auctions.
Meanwhile, July Andrews’s dress from The Sound of Music only went for $38K, which is complete shit because The Sound of Music is far and away the best musical of all time, not to mention the best Rodgers and Hammerstein composition. But this begs the question: how much would you pay for Marilyn Monroe’s panties? Fifty, sixty grand?
Somebody somewhere would pay in the hundreds no doubt. I’m sure back in the 50’s and 60’s there were no thongs. But then again, she was a pioneer, a visionary. Maybe she just didn’t wear underwear. Maybe she wore silk panties. Maybe they were just something really cool that nobody even knew about yet.
She was a slut and proud DECADES before it became mainstream. Props to her. Without betches like her, there’d be no thongs, no short skirts, no bikinis. Girls would wear one-piece bathing suits all day like some Middle Eastern country or some shit.
