stimulus bonus possibilities

63.5 bottles of Christain Lacroix mineral water?

David Jones food hall: feb 2009

I know we are being encouraged to spend, spend, spend to save Australia from going down the gurgler but who in their right mind buys stuff like this?

Who? My guess:
Pretentious Princesses with their parent's money to burn.

No wonder DJ's sales figures have fallen so low. What the hell are their buyers thinking, sourcing stuff like that?

It reminds me of the article on Dubai in the Good Weekend, where one of the interviewees - a single young woman - claims that people get a bit silly with their excesses over there, then reveals that in addition to a Chauffer and a housekeeper, she keeps a fulltime beautician to do her hair and makeup etc every day.

Oh too funny, a $15 bottle of Evian!
Makes my filter jug look so unfashionable :)

That is outrageous. I saw that the other day and I know so many people in my age group who would buy this with their parent's money.

It angers me.

Hey AOF! How's about you and me get in there and piss in a few of those bottles?

I'm snapping up every last bottle of it as soon as my spendathon bonus arrives from Mr Rudd.

But seriously, at $15 it's a good deal cheaper than the fancypants water that people are prepared to pay for in many a multi-hat/star restaurant the world over. And it's surprising how many people happily bear that egregious excess.
