COLLINSVILLE, Ill – A southern Illinois landmark has mysteriously been sold on April 1st. That is according to a tweet from the Brook’s Catsup Bottle. The message posted to social media reads, “Financing came thru early April 1. on my way to retirement in sunny FLA #LivingLarge”
The April Fool’s Day post underlines a real conundrum for the owners of the roadside attraction. The asking price for the 65-year-old piece of Americana is $200,000. So far no bids have been placed on the “World’s Largest Bottle of Catsup.” It went up for sale last July.
The helicopter was a nice touch in the prank photo.
