Maybe this should be in Hot Deals, but it's just too bizarre of a "deal," I had to bring it to Otterville.

No. Costco sells some weird crazy stuff. They had a $300,000 diamond ring up on the front page not too long ago.

It may be an item that is actually for sale, but it is definitely a joke.

Return Policy states that is can be returned to over 800 centers. Having a big party, I will buy it, use it and return it on monday. Should be off the credit card by statement time

That looks like something GoVegan drew. I just can't find the dog poo.

I got all excited about the Chagalls, but they're lithographs. (I couldn't afford them anyway)

This was already posted months ago, but I"m to lazy to find it.

I know they sometimes sell "pseudo" copies of fine art for those that don't like to hit the starving artist sales at the Holiday Inn.

Please don't get me wrong, and to each his or her own, however, I for one can't believe people will pay that kind of money for scribbly stuff like that.

Well, actually, I can, but I can't at the same time (if you know what I mean).

Someone recently said (concerning this type of artistic chicken-scratch):

"It must be nice to be able to finger-paint and get paid for it…what a complete joke and mockery to the struggling Rembrandts of the world."
