As we all know, Amazon.com is pretty much the ultimate resource and makes shopping so simple. In fact, last Christmas I didn’t buy a single present from the shops. I got every single one off Amazon. Having them delivered to your door, not having to deal with the hundreds of other shoppers are all huge plus points, but clearly the biggest one is that most of the time it’s cheaper, too.
That is, most of the time.
It was this truly extraordinarily expensive speaker cable, which has a price tag of… wait for it… $8450.00!!
INSANE right? It must be a joke. That’s what I thought anyway, but if you follow the link back to the manufacturer’s page you’ll see that they actually have a pages and pages of cables priced from a hundred bucks, to a few hundred and a consistent range all the way up to this $8450 monster. In fact you have to go through four pages to find anything less than $1000. If you’re tempted to buy one, then you’d better hurry up because there’s only one left in stock – order soon!!
But that’s not the great bit, it gets better. The comments are amazing.
People have totally taken this to heart and have come up with some just brilliant responses. My favorite quote so far is:
“Pros: Quickly tears through scales, fur, bone, and adamantium with ease
Coils and uncoils from hip holster (optional) quickly and quietly
For a product fabricated from 1,000 Onyx Dragon fetuses, the price is unbelievably reasonable!”
I won’t give you any more because it would take half the fun out of it, go and have a look yourself. Which ones made you laugh? Do you have previous experience wielding one of these in the heat of battle?
