Periodically, often while waiting for 7 years to get into a bathroom at Rose Bar, I would ask myself “who does cocaine?”And Myself replied in this beautiful Margaret Thatcher voice “people who don’t fear the porta potties at Fashion Week.” So, people who are destined to die, soon.

The world’s most expensive Barbie just sold for $300,000 at Christies. Because she’s a priceless work of art! Also, because she’s wearing a one carat diamond necklace. That you can’t remove and wear yourself. Though maybe you could? As a pinky ring? If you just popped that Barbie’s head off? Though I guess that would destroy the “work of art.” Well, I guess people make choices, and I’m sure this purchase seemed like a good idea at the time. Now. Here are some things you could spend $300,000 on that are not a Barbie. More »
