WTF? A $25,000 Cupcake?!

Racking your brain for ways to get more into debt? It's easy! Buy a motorized cupcake!


Maybe Neiman Marcus didn't get the memo. The upscale retailer seems to have no clue that the nation has been plunged into the worst economic times since the Great Depression. In keeping with their tradition of rampant excess, Neiman just sent out their 2009 Christmas Book. The catalog mailing is great news for the richest 1% of the U.S. population. You know, those people wrestling with that conundrum of what to do with all their pesky disposable income.

For the rest of us, if you'd like to forego food and shelter for your family, then by all means, put yourself on the list for Neiman's latest "something for someone who has everything": a $25,000 "customized cupcake car."

What's the point, you say? The product description gives many uses:

  • Make the kids or grandkids literally squeal with joy.
  • Bring it to work and buzz the breakroom.
  • Crash parades!
  • Putter about the 'hood. Ever had a crowd of kids chasing after you
    just for the crazy gleeful heck of it?

Each cupcake can be "tricked out with your favorite topping." It would be awesome if one of the topping choices was money!

This can’t be for real. Although the guy at the front looks overjoyed to have one, so maybe it is worth the investment!

If at first you don’t succeed, find out if the loser gets anything.

No one who cannot rejoice in the discovery of his own mistakes deserves to be called a scholar.

If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.
