Over-the-Top Kids Birthday Parties

How much did you spend on your kid's last birthday party? However much it was, I bet you didn't spend $40,000.

That's right: here's a story on ABC Nightline by Andrea Canning and Alexander Waterfield about over-the-top kids' birthday parties.

There was bowling, an aerialist, even a roller coaster, and still the birthday boy slept. His name was Jojo, and he was 1.

But that didn't stop his parents, Lisa Augustine and Joe Martino, of Staten Island, N.Y., from sparing no expense on Jojo's mega-birthday bash.

Augustine, after jokingly asking for a bodyguard, specified how much: "We're like $40,000 right now."

I don't understand the filthy rich, but it's their money to waste. That baby boy will have quite enough money for college and ferraris when he's older. And he'll probably be as vapid as Paris Hilton.

"And the economy is bad?"

When the Nigerians don't pay them what they promised they will default on that 40k party and the government will bail it out.
