Clearly the recession hasn’t quite reached everyone. The Today Show recently introduced the finely crafted 14K gold laces designed by Mr. Kennedy who created them using “ancient, artisan jewelry techniques.” According to the “Today Show,” each set of laces is “handmade by Colombian workers,” takes 120 hours to produce and will be delivered to you by security and “laced for you anywhere in the world.”

Don’t have $19K to spend on gold laces for your latest pair of Jordans, Chucks or Air Max 95s? No worries! You can buy a pair of silver laces from Mr. Kennedy for the low, low budget price of only $3,000 a pair.

Insert sarcasm here.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but even if I did have $19K to spare the last thing I would be spending it on is a pair of gold shoelaces. But I’m pretty sure somewhere in the world, someone is pulling out their Rush Card and stopping payment a couple of rent checks to try and make a purchase. We’ve got to do better people.
