For sale: 24-karat gold pills that “turn your innermost parts into chambers of wealth.” At $425 a poop, I mean a pop, your shit will be flecked with pure gold flakes when you swallow these luxurious vitamins.
“Like an addict, all I want is more. Like celebrity and celebrity culture, demand for luxury items is completely created,” said the designers, Tobi Wong and Ju$t Another Rich Kid, who originally created the pills as part of an art project in 2006. Wong has since passed away.
Sadly, something which it seems was meant to make us take a look at our culture, will now end up in the Kardashians’ toilet bowl. But maybe that was their point all along? Seeing as how the golden poop pills are temporarily out of stock, you’ll have to rethink your subversive Christmas list. [Daily Mail UK]
Oh, this is bad. Really bad. Three women went out for a night on the town in Stockton, California, last week and just wanted to have some food and fun. At the Cameo Club Casino’s restaurant, they each ordered a tri-tip with fries and a soda, but when the bill came, they were floored — and not because of the price.
There printed at the top was “Fat Girls.” According to ABC News 10, one of the women, Christine Duran, saw it and couldn’t believe her eyes. When she told her friends, they thought she was joking at first, but when she showed it to them, they were understandably shocked and outraged. “I was like, ‘Oh, heck no,’” Isabel Robles told the station.
So they called the server over, and that’s when things went from bad to worse. Read more…
Sure, your plastic iPhone case might look stylish and keep your phone safe from cracks and scratches, but it has one major design flaw: you can’t eat it. That’s where the Senbei Survival iPhone Case comes in. Designed and developed by a Japanese baker, the survival case is made of rice and salt, and doubles as a nutritious treat in the event that you become trapped somewhere and find yourself slowly starving to death. Sounds like a sweet deal, right? The only problem is the rice cracker phone case is so fragile, its chances of making it through your morning commute–let alone a natural disaster–are slim to none. The product website explains the likelihood of the case breaking is 89% if you put it in your pocket, 50% if you try to turn up the volume on your phone, 18% if you use the touchscreen, oh, and one more thing: there’s a 9% chance it will break in the box while being delivered to your house. Still, it seems that people are willing to overlook these minor issues for a chance to munch on their iPhone cases: the phone has already sold out at select retailers. [Daily Mail]

We’ve written about “reborn dolls” before: they are extremely lifelike baby dolls which are often purchased by women who have suffered miscarriages and/or had abortions. Often women dress them up in outfits and give them names. The dolls are usually pretty creepy-looking on their own, but this vampire baby reborn doll for sale on Etsy.com is gives me extra chills.

So, let’s say the world actually is going to end on December 21st, as predicted by the Mayan calendar maker whose carving hand got tired and finally said, “Fuck this, I’m getting a drink.” How would you want to spend your last hours on Earth? A quiet night in with family and friends? Watching one final sunset over the ocean? Confessing a lifetime of sins to your priest? Putting the finishing touches on your apocalypse survival kit? How about horfing a platter of loaded potato skins and pounding “Mayan Margaritas” with a bunch of rowdy douchebags at T.G.I. Friday’s? Yep, this meaningful end-of-the-world experience can be yours, thanks to T.G.I. Friday’s “The Last Friday” apocalypse party, which includes a special “Mayan Menu,” thumping dance music, giveaways, and a photobooth. Last Friday parties are scheduled in Chicago, D.C., Los Angeles, Miami, Tampa, and Orlando, so if you want to join in the hedonist hoedown, book your tickets now. As for me, if I somehow find myself at a T.G.I. Friday’s apocalypse party, I will take it as proof the world actually did end, and hell is way worse than I ever imagined. [Zagat]
