Problem is this junk doesn't...people get tired of the sight of it cluttering up their homes... ends up on Ebay for a fraction of its original price, car boot sales, charity shops, or in landfill.

They store it in the original boxes in the basement, inside other larger boxes. It doesn't even get displayed. Spending money to spend money.

They sell it as stuffing for pillows and mattresses for rich Ayrans.

Why do cheap Chinese take out places in NY (or maybe everywhere) all have the same menus and the same depressing photos of their food? Do they all come from the same guy, who just took a bunch of photos of lo mein and glazed chicken in 1993 and just passed them out to everyone to use?
