CBS says this year’s American Girl holiday doll costs $5,000 because it is wearing a dress with 5,000 Swarovski crystals and beads. The less expensive version of the doll, which doesn’t have real crystals, costs $36.
Speaking of stupidly expensive things, a Hong Kong jewelry company unveiled a gold toilet yesterday at a convention in China. The toilet seat has 40,000 diamonds embedded in it. The seat is encased in bulletproof glass and has a total of 334 carats and is worth $1.3 million. A Guinness Book of World Records representative is expected to certify the toilet today as having the most diamonds on a commode. No matter how expensive it is…guys still won’t put the seat down.
The NY Post says a YouTube star from Asia was recently arrested for secretly spending the night in an IKEA store. Max Lee posted videos of himself wandering throughout the store, naked. He used a shower, a toilet and lounged on sofas as people commented on his overnight stay. Max was charged with indecent conduct and unlawful entry. And it might be a good idea NOT to buy the floor model from that store.
