Faux Pas: Eh, What's Up Doc?

Aug 19, 2010

 

I’m deeply disturbed by the fact that someone would charge $5,600 for an enamel carrot ring.  But I am horrified by the fact that so many delusionally wealthy people wanted to own Bugs Bunny’s engagement ring, that the ring sold out in one day.

Who are these people?  And what makes them think that this ring is so special?

    it's a three carrot [carat] ring… get it?

  2. Shannon says:

    Maybe the Twilight engagement ring sold out, and this was the second choice?

  3. bek says:

    I love it! I would pay probably 5 dollars max for it though….

  4. annie says:

    while i sometimes disagree with you, this is the fugliest thing i've seen in ages. hor.ri.fied.

  5. This looks like something that comes out of a quarter machine in one of those little plastic eggs…

  6. MomInHeels says:

    I love the tongue in cheek-iness of this ring and would completely buy it. But NOT for that ridiculous price!!

  7. Chris says:

    I'd like to meet one of those people so I could either: laugh at their matching earrings and broach or if they've left those at home, slap some sense into them. I could see those being somewhat of a gimmicky thing to where, say around Easter… but for a few bucks, not $5600…

  8. ~M says:

    While it's disturbing that it sold out, it's a lot easier to sell out of 3 rings than 300. Maybe Betsy Johnson bought one for herself and one for for each of the guys from Heatherette.

  9. Eek! That is terrifying. I don't know who would buy that but luckily they are too rich for me ever to meet them and see this in person.

    Just found your blog. Love it!

This weekend, I got two hours to myself for the first time in months. Really to myself. My child was asleep. My dogs were asleep. Kyle was off playing cards with his friends. My house was clean, and there was nothing else to do but sit in my bed and scroll Instagram. It was glorious. […]

November AMA: You Asked, I Answered

Another month has come and gone, and between a busy work schedule, illness and the search for new childcare, I almost forgot to ask for questions for the AMA.  Luckily, I remembered late last night.  So here we go. I always think it’s funny when people send rude or overly personal questions when I put […]
