Thom Yorke's 'finger' sold on E-Bay

LONDON, March 15 (UPI) -- An item identified as Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke's middle finger has been sold on E-Bay, New Music Express Online reports.

The article sparked a bidding frenzy last week that ended with its sale Monday for $466.

Although some bidders may have mistaken the item for Yorke's real finger, the "pretty unique item of Radiohead memorabilia" appears to be the middle digit from the singer's NME Award, which he broke off during the Feb. 12 ceremony because it was "offensive," the music Web site noted.

Seller George Bagilhole claimed: "My friend saw him breaking the finger off against a wall and picked it up after he walked off."
