$1000 Popsicle

The Marquis Los Cabos resort in Mexico now offers a thousand-dollar popsicle. What makes it so pricey? It's made with 24-carat gold flakes and a luxury band of tequila that costs $1500 a bottle.

The icy treat is served poolside on a classic plastic stick and has a little sugar in it to take the edge off, though salt would seem to be more appropriate.

The patrician popsicle joins a world of fantasy foods that includes the $1,000 pizza served at Nino’s Bellisima restaurant in New York and the $1,200 Mai Tai mixed up at the the Merchant Hotel in Belfast, Ireland.

Yeah, what's with the plastic stick? That would seem to be the most logical part to fancy it up. Plus, you would actually get to keep it as a valuable souvenir.

As far as "yay, the rich people are awesome because they spend their money" attitude, why can't they spend it on ME?

Yeah thank god for rich people or else housemaids or gardeners wouldn't have a job. [sarc] You can't blame most rich people for being rich, most are born into riches in fact. (Which doesn't mean you have to like them, for some reason - I don't know why [sarc] - they are also a**h*les, buy that's another story.

This gross difference in wealth and living standards just illustrates imo that there is something wrong with the way our world works.

@dparks i admit that i know next to nothing about economics and such...but i have to agree with you. if pretentious rich people are willing to pay $1000.00 for basically nothing - that puts $1000.00 back into circulation. so, isn't it a good thing that there are rich people out there spending their money whether it be on useful or useless crap?

yeah, it's annoying that they can buy a popsicle that costs more than most people are able to spend on a couple months worth of food...but hey, at least we get the money back in circulation AND we get to laugh at them...plus they get a bitchin' popsicle. everybody's happy!
