Golden Misses- 1

Stuff that's made from gold- and shouldn't be:

1. Facials

24-karat face mask. Incidentally, this spa once displayed a window sign reading "Go back to school with a teen facial!"

2. Pills

24-k gold-dipped, gold-filled capsules designed by Tobias Wong and J.A.R.K. $425a pop.

3. Vacuum cleaners

Vacuum cleaners
Originally priced at $1 million, but currently on sale for $999,999.00! What a steal.

4. Barbecue Grills

Barbecue Grills
$164,000. Grilling surface aside, every component of this is plated with 24-karat gold. Not sure if the BBQ grease would ruin this after one use, or give it an even more luxurious sheen.

5. Entire bathrooms

Entire bathrooms
Found in the Hang Fung Gold Technology showroom in Hong Kong. Customers can use the 900 lb solid gold toilet for $128. Who could resist that opportunity to upper deck?

6. Chocolate bars

Chocolate bars
Because what kind of a lowly human being eats chocolate without heavy metals?

7. Slinkies

14-karat gold-plated slinky for the brattiest kid in class to jingle-jangle down their grand staircase. $99.99.

8. Shirts

White velvet, 3.2-karat gold, and Swarovski crystal buttons, commissioned by 32-year-old Indian moneylender Datta Phuge to impress ladies. It only set him back $22,400! Worth it? Worth it.

9. Ice cream

Ice cream
Serendipity 3's Golden Opulence sundae costs $1000 and features 23-karat gold leaf, gold dragets, dessert caviar, and more. Served in a crystal goblet with an 18-karat gold spoon.

10. iPhones

At $5000, one could buy 7 regular iPhone 5s instead.

11. Legos

Basically a solid brick of gold. $14,450.
