For sale: One blimp, no longer featuring a topless photo of the Queen

Canada’s now-departed satirical magazine¬†Frank once boasted its own blimp. And now, this iconic airship can be yours — if, for some reason, you yearn to own something that taunted Brian Mulroney from above his 1996 libel trial, or (infamously) sailed above Parliament Hill during the 1997 royal visit, adorned with a doctored photo of the Queen, topless. (Until the Mounties scrambled to get it down, anyway.)

One caveat: The signage is not included. We are not amused.

Frank’s iconic blimp is on sale on eBay — but without the colourful signage.
