What to give someone who already has it all
My wife’s birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I’m not sure what to get her. To try and think of some ideas, I have been desperately searching the Internet. This has been an entertaining exercise, but unfortunately I still haven’t figured out what to get her. However, my search hasn’t been completely pointless – I did manage to find what is possibly the strangest thing ever invented since the Shake Weight.
The Midas touch
The product that I found is the ambiguously titled Gold Pills. For the modest price of $425 you can buy one of these Gold Pills which, according to the description on the website:
“…these 24K gold leaf capsules turn your innermost parts into chambers of wealth. Consume and digest.”
Or to rephrase this in plain English: “These pills will turn your shit into gold”.
At first I thought that this product was just a joke, but after conducting a very small amount of research, I am confident that these “poo pills” are completely real. What is probably the most worrying thing about this product is according to the website, it has sold out. This means that a reasonable amount of people thought that turning their poop into gold was a good idea – or at least would make a great gift idea.
I can just imagine how the conversation would have sounded when they came up with the idea for these…uhh…pills.
Executive 1: “We need to create a product for the man who already has everything”
Executive 2: “Sure, do you have any suggestions?”
Executive 1: “How about something made of gold?”
Executive 1: “I’ve got it! Let’s make something that turns your poop into gold”
And so the idea was born…
