The super rich people in this country now have so much money that apparently they’ll spend ANY AMOUNT on anything, no matter how STUPID it is.  And oh baby, these are stupid.

Tiffany’s just decided to branch out from selling moderately overpriced jewelry to sell insanely overpriced, quote, “ordinary objects.”  Here are some examples . . .

1.  A $350 sterling silver bendy straw.

2.  A $1,000 empty tin can.

3.  A $425 silver protractor.

4.  A $650 pair of ping pong paddles.

5.  A $10,000 fake silver bird’s nest with three blue porcelain eggs.

6.  A $1,950 flask shaped like a fish.

7.  A $1,500 set of 10 Lego pieces.

8.  And maybe worst of all, a $9,000 ball of silver yarn.

They’re all laughing at us, you know.  They’re all laughing at us.

 

People Whose Moms Nagged Them Grow Up To Be More Successful

If you spent your entire childhood with your mom NAGGING you . . . do your chores, do your homework, brush your teeth more than once a week . . . you should tell her “thank you.”

According to a new study out of England, people whose moms nagged them when they were growing up turn out to be more SUCCESSFUL as adults.

They’re more likely to go to college, avoid making really bad life choices, and have better paying jobs.

The researchers say, quote, “No matter how hard we tried to avoid our parents’ recommendations, it’s likely that they ended up influencing choices we consider extremely personal.”

In other words, your mom is still in your head at all times, steering the ship, even if you THINK you’re an adult making your own decisions.  Now go home and clean your room.
