"You So Crazy!"

Buyer's Remorse

If you thought $43 for a "fog" martini in San Francisco was a bit pricey, sit'cher self down.  You're going to need support.

The Grand Velas Las Cabos Resort  is offering guests their $25,000 Taco. 

Of course it's a promotional stunt.  I seriously doubt that anyone would ever order one.  Especially since we don't have to go any further than 5th and PCH for a very good taco at Rosa's for $.2.50.

What on earth is in one you gasp, thumping your hand against your chest in shock?  Very well - start with a corn tortilla (which is about as low rent as you can get) and sprinkle it with 24k gold flakes.

Stuff this shell with Kobe beef, shrimp, beluga caviar, and black truffle Brie.  Pico Pica sauce?  Tsk! You fool!    The salsa is morita chiles and civet coffee made from fermented droppings of a civet that ate coffee beans. 

I can't imagine circumstances that would force ingestion of re-cycled civet shit - let alone pay $25,000 for it.

Cultural Appropriation - Take off those hoop earrings, Girl!

Pitzer College, of Claremont, CA, is fomenting fury at white women who wear big hoop earrings.  A wall on campus has been set aside to air and exhibit the grief and outrage of black females (presumably - but this is a liberal arts college) who feel this jewelry is strictly the property of black women. 

Despite the fact that it was a very popular item in Egypt in the days of Cleopatra. 

Ah, yes - the beauty of liberal thinking.  If you want to earmark Pritzer for your kid, annual tuition is $47,020 to learn how to riot about who gets to wear hoop earrings.   Ah, for the Golden Ages when telephone booth stuffing (how many adults in one booth?) and goldfish swallowing (self explanatory.)  Those truly were the good old days.  Except for the goldfish.
