This isn’t the sort of post I normally write, but bear with me. I recently became aware of the fact that Tiffany & Co. sells some God damned harbinger of the Apocalypse called the “Four Ants Straw.” It is a—a, singular—sterling silver straw with four little ants on it. It retails for $275. For a straw.
I know, I know. Rich people buy expensive shit. At Tiffany, no less! But for some reason, I saw this straw, and it just about broke my fucking brain. I had to go down the rabbit hole and see what other bonkers shit the 1% is dropping, in many cases, a pretty damn sizable percentage of my rent on.
