Living Well at $12k apiece.

Swiss clockmaker Artya announced in March the creation of a wristwatch set in fossilized dinosaur feces (with a strap made with skin from an American cane toad). Designer Yvan Arpa told the Associated Press the watch would sell for about $12,000. [MSNBC-AP, 3-15-10]

Wonder if they will come out with a more affordable version...maybe made of cow patties? Or maybe for the pet lover...fido's dumper...especially after eating that dog food that's supposed to make him an optimum pooper.

Funny, I thought this was going to be a thread about a LBYM couple living on $24k per year.

Im trying to come up with a psychological profile for someone who would buy a piece of crap like this. It's not a pretty picture.
