Have You Ever Kept a Lock of Someone's Hair?

Oct 19 2009 - 12:02pm

This week, someone paid $15,000 dollars [1] for a clump of Elvis Presley's hair. Not for a jacket, belt, or even a pair of sunglasses — for his hair. This seems a little ridiculous to me, and not just because of the price. I understand that many people keep locks of their children's hair, and I can understand keeping a lock from a loved one, but what about this situation, where the person who's getting the hair may well simply be a stranger? And how do you keep something like that: frame it and mount it on a wall? What do you think? Have you ever kept a lock of someone's hair, or is this just creepy?
