    Who cares? This person probably didn't take out a sub-prime mortgage to pay for it and does not need any bailout. It created a few jobs, and someone designed something truly unique and new. Remember to consider the relative opulence that you live in when compared to 85% of the world.

    +100.

    It reeks of poor taste; but doesn't take any money out of my pocket.

    Populism, FTL.

    I'm surprised to see myself write this, but I actually agree. They are very rich; why is this any more newsworthy than people who buy $1 mil wedding rings? A dog house at least has SOME use; a big overpriced goofy rock on your finger just sits there. Yet, when really rich people buy expensive jewelry, it hardly makes headlines. We are so schizophrenic in our culture when it comes to what is and is not acceptable to do with our money. It's okay to buy a giant boat or jewelry or a car for ridiculous sums, but why not spend it on your dog if that is what you want to do?

    Agreed, allthough its still not my type of spending.. I do remember someone going into a car dealership and ordering a 200k+ car.. Funny thing was that by the time he got through the options list he stunned the salesman by asking him if the center console could be altered in a way so his jack russel could ride with him safely.. Apparently that was the dogs favorite place to be in a car[​IMG]

    I can appreciate the affection people have for their pets.

    The thing that pisses me off is that if they have enough money to literally blow on stupid things, yet they don't put their money to good use. They're selfish. Why not donate that $380,000 to the struggling families where the heads of the households have lost their jobs and they still have three kids and a wife to feed and support?

    You're on a fucking clothing forum and probably own many things you do not need. You're a hypocrite and a moron. Do you not realize that just by living in the western world, owning a computer and earning over $30,000 that you are enormously wealthy by the standards of at least 6 billion people in the world? Do you not realize that what you are now saying about these people could just as easily be said about you, and by a lot of starving people?

    Don't come on a high end clothing forum and preach the equal sharing of misery you mediocre cunt.
