Some lucky bidder paid $200 for 14 pairs of Bernie Madoff's boxers at a government auction this weekend at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The undies were confiscated from the Ponzi schemer's Palm Beach mansion and sold by the U.S. Marshals Service, along with his prescription eyeglasses, antique golf clubs, and a photo of something that, according to the Miami Herald, looks like "a big white rear end."
-Kim Rothstein's bidet
-Madoff's nail clippers (for real!)
-Those $2,000 cashmere pants Madoff ordered but never picked up from a Worth Avenue boutique
