Boing! Boing!

The Gold-Plated Slinky Is Ridiculous This is a $120 14-karat gold-plated Slinky. I hear it only works when it’s going down like the fancy marble steps of a mansion. But that’s neither here nor there. The real question is, why the hell does this exist?

Your Say

It exists because someone proved Tom Tusser's axiom.

They make pills so you can poop gold. http://goo.gl/KR0ga
It exists because people will buy it, part of that consumerist/capitalist society we live in.

Because it can.

Somebody WILL buy it. Because the can.

I'm hoping it was made to piss off "progressives" who spend their miserable lives bemoaning disparities in wealth. "Think of how many government bureaucrats could be paid for with the money that will be spent on these useless toys for the wealthy!"

At least it won't make your hands smell.

I am not offended by the Slinky per se, it's a free marketplace, but I gauran-damn-tee that Teh Won's mega rich supporters have similar useless gold/diamond encrusted crap by the effin' bushel while bleating about "fairness".
