stupid shit people spend their money on.

my dad is a banker and all i hear from him lately is blah blah blah economic crisis blah blah. he says it's because of sub-prime lending blah blah blah blah. i say it's becasue of this:

for the mere pittance of 140 us dollars you can own this treasure:

somewhere out there, someone thinks that this is a good deal! i know that for a lot of people 140 dollars is pennies but something tells me they're not the ones who are ordering these things.

i understand that some things make people happy and are therefore worth any amount blah blah blah blah. but seriously. if this makes you happy you should probably take a good look at your life.

i don't know why i'm so irate over this stupid doll. it's things like this that make me really, really dislike america and americans, for the most part. it also irritates me to no end to know that the jackass responsible for designing and producing these things is probably far richer than i'll ever be. he's probably richer than you and your grandfather who came over on the boat and worked his fingers to the bone!

i know the grass is always greener blah blah blah but i am extremely hesitant to raise a child in a country that encourages such nonsense and accepts such aesthetics. i hope my generation does a little bit better.
