If anyone is stupid enough to buy that stuff, then they should facepalm repeatedly and with enthusiasm.

They're actually not there for anybody to buy. They're there for outraged Twitterati and other dwellers of the social mediaverse to forward endlessly with increasingly breathless outrage, giving Tiffany's the sort of free holiday media exposure for which they otherwise would have had to pay through the nose. But don't feel like you're a corporate tool for submitting this, subby. It's so clever a trick that there's no way you could have been expected to understand your small role in the vast machinery of a planned viral media campaign.

Not gonna lie, I think the bone china "paper" cups are kinda neat. And at only $95 for a pair, the price is merely stupid, as opposed to being obscene.

They are actually for people to buy.  Here is the link to the Tiffany website. What's up with you lately?  You used to have witty narratives and they've just been really douchy lately.  Have you reached menopause or something?

Those folks are done drafting Trump's tax plan so it's back to their regular job now.

Wealth inequality is a thing.

You can knit a hell of a scarf with a ball of yarn that sets you back nine large. People say it would possibly be the most effective scarf of the modern era. Believe me, I know things.

As a knitter, I probably have about $9K in yarn stashed around my house and I've never knit something for myself. Maybe THIS is the yarn I need!

The point of buying pointless expensive crap like that is to show off that you can afford it; where exactly are you supposed to display the yo-yo?

You are all missing the beauty of this. Buy sterling silver yarn for $9000.

Propose to your girlfriend with it instead of a boring engagement ring.

Spend your happily married years referring to her as "The ol' ball and skein."
