    Pffft.  How could a dress be that valuable or important without any Presidential DNA on it?  
     
    Unless there was a story about FDR and Judy Garland that I slept through in American History class…

    Absolutely adored the young Judy Garland in that dress. Just saw a documentary on her life and surprisingly she was the least talented and most unattractive of her sisters at the time she auditioned for the role in Wizard Of Oz and was so determined to do well got the part! She was 16 years old…

    Are the barbiturates in the pockets included in the price? Also do they know any dry cleaners good at getting out 73 year old midget semen?

      @Docintoxicated The Red Devils are included, but the Yellow Jackets and empty flask are extra.

    Fez bought it and uses it as his jizz rag balled up next to his bed.

    does it have authentic Judy snail trail stain?  If so, does it pass the sniff test?
