Mandy DeLucia from Sotheby's prepares to kiss the Spitting Image puppet of President Clinton on Friday at the New Bond Street branch of Sotheby's. More than 200 puppets from the British television series will go on sale Friday over the Internet. The sale runs until July 20. The British series, which ran from 1984 to 1998, mercilessly skewered the famous and the pompous, from politicians and royalty to sporting icons and showbiz celebrities. It spawned franchise versions in countries including Japan, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Greece, Hungary, Germany and New Zealand.
