Unnecessary Knowledge

Comments on #2464

When shipped to the US, the London bridge ( thought by the new owner to be the more famous Tower Bridge ) was classified by US customs to be a 'large antique'.

James Huntley:
There is absolutely no truth in the rumour that the Americans thought they were getting Tower Bridge when they bought London Bridge. On April 15, McCulloch Oil Corporation of Los Angeles signed the contract for £1,029,000 at Guildhall in London. The McCulloch Corporation knew what they were doing, too. London Bridge has put Lake Havasu City on the Lonn Colorado river, Arizona, firmly on the map.
uhh wtf
That is sooo cool
