22 Things That Shouldn’t Be Made Out Of Gold

Rich people are OUTRAGEOUS.

1. Facials

24-karat face mask. Incidentally, this spa once displayed a window sign reading “Go back to school with a teen facial!”

2. Pills

24-k gold-dipped, gold-filled capsules designed by Tobias Wong and J.A.R.K. $425 a pop.

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?

6. Chocolate bars

Because what kind of a lowly human being eats chocolate without heavy metals?

7. Slinkies

14-karat gold-plated slinky for the brattiest kid in class to jingle-jangle down their grand staircase. $99.99.

8. Shirts

White velvet, 3.2-karat gold, and Swarovski crystal buttons, commissioned by 32-year-old Indian moneylender Datta Phuge to impress ladies. It only set him back $22,400! Worth it? Worth it.

9. Ice cream

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.

10. iPhones

At $5000, one could buy 7 regular iPhone 5s instead.

11. Legos

Basically a solid brick of gold. $14,450.

12. Credit Cards

$100,000 for a card of pure gold, diamonds, and mother of pearl inlay. Losing this would be a BITCH.

13. Instant noodles

Limited edition instant noodles in a gold leaf cup. Sold for £29.95, or $48 by current exchange rates.

14. Guitars

18-karat gold-plated guitars by Jhoseph King. Starting price of $1 million and complete with pseudo-oriental iconography.

15. Pacifiers

14-karat white gold, $17,000. Not sure if these are intended for actual infants or just wealthy adult babies.

16. No. 2 Pencils

Plated with a thin layer of 24-karat gold. I’m willing to be the dumpster diver who scrounges for the discarded shavings.

17. Vibrators

18-karat yellow and white gold, with a band of diamonds. $25,000.

18. Cheese

£608 (~$1000) per kilo, or approximately $100 per slice. Serve with solid gold crackers?

19. More vibrators

22-karat gold with inlaid gemstones…ouch. $3,500.

20. Tricycles

Asking price upon request. By Wisa Gloria.

21. Entire cars

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

22. Assault Rifles

Versace gold plated AK-47, $9,000. Horrifying.
