    The Associated Press reports that the FBI has seized a set of John Lennon's fingerprints from a Manhattan memorabilia shop that was planning to auction them. US agents removed an item on Wednesday from Gotta Have It!, a Big Apple shop. The print was reportedly made at a police station on May 8, 1976 and bears the name John Winston Ono Lennon. At the time, Lennon was applying for citizenship. The FBI is investigating just how the item came to be up for auction. The storeowner said an unidentified concert promoter bought it at a Beatles convention about two decades ago.

    Why the hell would someone buy John Lennon's fingerprints? Is Lennon bigger than Jesus, even in death?
