I thought this was an inside joke, but truth is stranger than fiction once again.

And all this time I thought it was only politicians who tried to feed people a load of cr*p.

I think I damaged my brain, liver, and possibly even my soul with that stuff in college...not to mention Mad Dog 20/20 and even the occasional "King Cobra" malt liquor. On second thought, I always thought mad dog was probably what embalming fluid would taste like...so maybe that balanced the others out?

It makes me smile and cringe at the same time!

Heh, heh. You need to watch THE BUCKET LIST and watch Morgan Freeman (as Carter the dying auto mechanic) tell Jack Nicholson (as Edward, the dying Megamillionaire) what gives Kopi Luwak its unique and expensive flavor. It's the best laugh of the movie - worth it just for this scene. YMMV

I heard that there were counterfeit versions of Kopi Luwak going around. Ironically, some rich people were really angry to find out that there wasn't any $h!t in their coffee!

The things some people complain about!

I Bought it, Because I Can

Ok the oh so fussy kids were away yesterday so we splurged... stuffed flounder for dinner! The crab meat was $19 a pound. Oh so good. I guess my idea of splurging is pretty small time. They will be away tonight as well - lobster tails!

I say if you can afford it and you really want it...do it.

Reminds me of when our three boys were still at home, we had steak every Sunday--but it was chuck roast, sliced in half to make the thickness work. Once they were all gone, we went to tenderloin--not because they were fussy, but because the family ate over 5 pounds of meat at that meal when they were in high school!

I see you didnt read the posts clearly. I walk around with a lot of dough. When i go to get a few bottles of champagne for my pre Fathers day festivities, i dont have that on me. I dont usually carry $54,000 on me. But although you are trying to mock me, I DO carry gold on me at all times. I have a $50 1998 gold coin money clip. So the coin itself is an ounce, and the money clip it was set in is only 14k with a 51 point diamond in it. Yeah, try and take it. I see this is the second consecutive post that seems to be anti BCG, you got a beef with me? This also proves my point, I spend more using plastic than cash.

So if someone isn't excited as you about your purchase then they have a beef with you? We're happy for your booze purchase. Good time to move on with this thread

I never said I walk around with 54k, I never said I dont use plastic. Am I not allowed to respond to a poster that I perceive to be twisting my words. Im a huge kidder, I dont think he was kidding me. If Im wrong he can respond, and I will apologize.

I was kidding; no offense was intended. I had no intention to "twist" your words; I was simply referring to an earlier post where you mentioned that you make habit of carrying large (in my opinion) sums of cash, which is contrary to *most* folks normal SOPs.

Then Sir, I was wrong and I am very sorry for not realizing it. I apologize.
