Those should sell well. Anyone who could afford them lives where no one would want them.

Jeeves! Fetch me an egg!

That'll look great with chicken crap all over it.

Good luck getting the chickens to eat cake.

Romney might get a few for the estate, now that he's got some extra time to hang out at home. Bubba from Walmart, Arkansas? Not so much.

Probably the only thing worse for a chicken than getting guillotined would be getting choked.

What an expensive hen house might look like.

What crushing disappointment might look like.

That is a nice hen house. And I do enjoy the company of chickens. Oh what the heck, it's Christmas, I'll get two.

I don't see more than $1000 worth of materials at the most expensive.

I don't know how much stuff they sell out of the fantasy catalog. We normally think of it as a status thing, but I think the status is more for the sake of Neiman Marcus. There only has to be one of each object, if someone orders two then the shiat hits the fan.

Let them eat feed.

Hugely overpriced .

For where the gop elites can keep their chickens between......um............aw Hell you get what I'm implying.

Some of these things that NM offers seem so absolutely retarded that I wonder if they actually have a warehouse full of these ridiculous overpriced things laying around (like the infamous "Cupcake Cart", seen below)?

Do they do these stupid things just to get the publicity that the media always showers on them (certainly nothing happened in the past 48 hours that takes priority, right ABC?) but they don't actually have any in stock because no one in their right mind would buy one?

What would happen if some senile billionaire moron came in with an order? Would the guys at NM be running around yelling "OH SH*T SOMEONE ACTUALLY IS BUYING ONE OF THESE? WTF WE DO NOW?"?

As someone with their own ($120) coop, that was my first thought as well.

/fresh eggs are amazing

Those things were in my Berkeley neighborhood three years ago. At the time we assumed it was something for Burning Man.

The one in back is pushing the front one. Cupcake trouble, evidently.

The guy in the chocolate one seems to be the exact same guy as in the NM photo. Did NM just say "Fark it we didn't sell a single one. Just haul away this pos and you can have it for free"?

I guess the owner will have to choke them instead.

I ain't havin' nothing to do with Neiman Marcus again since they tried to screw over my momma for that damn cookie recipe.
 
2012-12-15 06:32:16 PM
Looks like it's inspired by a smaller estate on the property rather than the palace. Too bad, because it would have been amusing to watch chickens try to figure out the Hall of Mirrors.

You went the wrong way, old King Louie.
You made the population cry,
'Cuz all you did was sit and pet with Marie Antoinette
In your place at Versailles.

/He may well have sat and petted with every woman *but* Marie Antoinette. Kings historically have not exactly been model husbands.
 
2012-12-16 12:18:41 AM
Uhh there was no guillotine at Versailles, retard. It was in Paris at the Place de la Revolution.

Except poor Louis had a condition where it was painful for him to get an erection.

The point of it isn't to sell one. They don't care if they sell one. Having these outrageous high priced items gets media attention. Media attention gets people to pick up their catalog to see what the hubbub is about. And once people have the catalog, they may order something else out of it. That is why they have these crazy items every year.
 
2012-12-16 07:46:12 AM
Hopefully this goes over better than their cookie recipe! Man, they must have lost SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much money over that one.
 
2012-12-16 10:38:45 AM
So I called up their catalog number and told them how much I liked that chicken coop. I asked if i might have a copy of the plans so I could make one for myself. And get this- they wanted $1.2 MILLION dollars for the plans! Well, I remembered a girlfriend that I had a few years back who worked at the Neiman Marcus headquarters, and I asked her if she could dig around in their computer systems. And guess what!!! She found the plans right there in a shared folder named "Chicken Coop Plans."

Nobody should have to pay over a million dollars for chicken coop plans, so I am attaching them to this message. Write your email address at the bottom and forward it to all your friends who enjoy woodworking and raising poultry.

P.S. Did NOBODY get my last email about how that guy was walking along the beach and saw two sets of footprints and then one set, and then another, and it was all "Jesus had to carry him because he got all depressed and stuff?" Because I didn't receive ANY copies back with my name on the list of people to be blessed and I am sure I sent it out to my entire contact list. I guess I just figured that there had to at least one person is a list of 300 friends who would send me back a copy with me on the to-be-blessed list. Hmmph.

In other news, still no low cost housing for the homeless.
