3. Vacuum cleaners
Originally priced at $1 million, but currently on sale for $999,999.00! What a steal.
4. Barbecue Grills
$164,000. Grilling surface aside, every component of this is plated with 24-karat gold. Not sure if the BBQ grease would ruin this after one use, or give it an even more luxurious sheen.
5. Entire bathrooms
Found in the Hang Fung Gold Technology showroom in Hong Kong. Customers can use the 900 lb solid gold toilet for $128. Who could resist that opportunity to upper deck?

Serendipity 3’s Golden Opulence sundae costs $1000 and features 23-karat gold leaf, gold dragets, dessert caviar, and more. Served in a crystal goblet with an 18-karat gold spoon.
At $5000, one could buy 7 regular iPhone 5s instead.
12. Credit Cards

14-karat white gold, $17,000. Not sure if these are intended for actual infants or just wealthy adult babies.
16. No. 2 Pencils

As if flaunting a Mercedes isn’t already douchey enough as is.
