Remember when people paid $20 for a pet rock! (and later, a good deal more for groups of them...).

Or how about the $40 for a genuine longhorn... er, "patty".

I have long since ceased to be amazed by people's purchasing stupidity!

Got a whole bunch of plastic bags, with handles mind you, out in the garage. Selling them for $500 a piece, since you know, they have handles and have been tested and proven they can carry whatever you want to put it them, even your dog's crap.
Now is not the time to divide ourselves, to relish in letters by men long dead. Now is the time to come and work together in order to bring this country onto the right track. We are all citizens of this country, it is time to treat eachother as equals.

That was 1975. I think the bag is probably a better deal after inflation.

What about 'Rock Plants'? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithops

The name is derived from the Ancient Greek words λίθος (lithos), meaning "stone," and ὄψ (ops), meaning "face," referring to the stone-like appearance of the plants. They avoid being eaten by blending in with surrounding rocks and are often known as pebble plants or living stones. The formation of the name from the Greek "-ops" means that even a single plant is called a Lithops.
