The most revolting item of undergarmentage on the planet. This foul piece of grey polyester was worn by gay artist Briggsy for his yearlong tour of South American leper colonies. During this time the unwashed one rogered the suppurating sores of over 2000 lepers whilst wearing the thong. On his return to London he finally removed the thong at a press conference and announced he would be exhibiting it at Tate Modern. It was subsequently bought at auction by a collector for £5,000,000.
Since being bought by Saatchi Briggsy's Thong has burnt through 5 lead-lined display cases and has caused the deaths of 12 gallery employees.
