Margarine names are getting weirder and weirder... Read More »

This weekend my friend Molly and I went to the fabric store and picked out a piece of gorgeous black fabric with pink polka dots. “You know,” said the woman at the counter, “we’re not supposed to call this color ‘black’ anymore. ‘Caviar’ is the new black.” Molly and I were stunned by this new development, and it got me wondering about other blase color names that could be replaced with elite artifacts from the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Check out my suggestions after the jump, and please share your own ideas in the comments! Keep reading »

My Jean-Paul Gaultier gold bar isn’t like the rest of my gold bars. It’s emblazoned with designer Jean-Paul Gaultier’s name and logo, for chrissakes. That means it cost a premium — like 10 percent more than the common gold bar, just because it has Gaultier’s name on it. So of course I can’t put it with the other gold bars. But also! I can’t just leave it out on the coffee table. Someone might mistake it for a very, very heavy coaster and accidentally put their glass of 1978 Montrachet on it. Embarrassing gaffe! The mantle? Then I’m afraid nobody will notice it and realize that I spent $1,826.33 on it (plus a $25 handling fee, duh). Won’t somebody come up with a Jean-Paul Gaultier Gold Bar Display Case? Come on, help me out here. [Telegraph UK]
