Talk about a gilded cage....

LONDON ó A solid gold toilet valued at $6 million has been stolen from Britainís Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

The working toilet, titled ďAmerica,Ē was on display as part of an exhibition by the Italian conceptual artist Maurizio Cattelan and was meant to be used by visitors.

The 18th-century estate said it was ďa great shameĒ that the solid gold, fully functioning toilet, had been stolen only two days after the exhibition opened.
