The Straw That Broke the Camel’s Bank Account

These days, there are luxury versions of everything. And such schmancy products usually come in rose gold color, which has been popular with the well-heeled for a little while now. Well, it looks like the rose gold craziness may have officially jumped the shark with this rose gold vermeil crazy straw from Tiffany & Co’s Everyday Objects collection. Everyday object my arse.

So now the high-end jeweler is also selling straws for rich dumbasses. That is the last straw for rose gold items. No, really. When you start to see stuff like this, you know that the trend is on its way out. This straw will cost you $350. I can get a whole truckload of straws for that price, plus some drinks to go with them. If that’s too pricey for you, Tiffany has other options. You can get a silver version for a much more “affordable” $250. I’m glad they have an option like that for those of us whose toilets are not made of gold.

At that price, I can finally upgrade my peasant stainless steel straw. It took me years to go from plastic to stainless steel and now it looks like I have finally arrived. Silver straw here I come!
