Good Day for Mamie, a 36-year-old elephant in Knoxville, Texas, who has been trained to paint. Some 25 paintings and 15 chalk drawings she has made over the past three months have now been put on sale in the zoo gift shops for $25 each.

Bad Day for Dan Quayle, whose autographed photograph fetched only $20 in a charity auction in Georgia, while a photo of Bill Cosby went for $70.

Even Worse Day for Elvis Presley, when a snip of hair trimmed from his sideburns failed to attract a buyer at an auction in Germany.
