Lifestyles of the Rich and the Absurd…were the Madden brothers right?

Sorry for the week long hiatus, life sort of got in the way. Anyway, I recently tripped up over some news that I found highly entertaining: 

The ability to poop glitter… Yes, you read that right. I am not talking about the mythical unicorn excrement or even Ke$ha style but actually glittering gold or silver with your number two. 

Apparently old news but been revitalized more recently, this Tobias Wong invention/design/creation has surfaced in a few articles lately. A designer from New York who made some strange pieces of “art” and design (obviously) created a pill that includes 24 caret gold and makes your poop sparkle. He originally created a silver version back in 1998 but now even gold is available. The pills cost $425 a piece and are supposed to “work” for about 24 to 30 hours. I am not entirely sure where they are available but apparently they do exist. 

Tobias Wong on the other hand, unfortunately, no longer does. After suffering for  many years from various sleep disorders the designer committed suicide three years ago in his New York apartment. Although there doesn’t seem to be very much information on him or his death, he was a regarded as an artist on the brink of success before he passed away. Some of his works have been displayed in the MoMA, including his bulletproof quilted duvet and rubber dipped Tiffany pearls, while others are housed in various galleries and even some traveling shows. 

So what do you think? If you had $425 to blow would you try these bad boys out? Or is glittery sh*t not really your thing?
