Just Stupid: NY's Algonquin Hotel "Offers" $10,000 Martini

Ummmm....

The landmark hotel, where famed wit Dorothy Parker and fellow literary lights at the Round Table imbibed, offers a $10,000 martini, complete with a loose diamond at the bottom.

...

"We haven't had any buyers yet, but a lot of people are talking about it," said Anthony Melchiorri, the hotel's general manager, on Wednesday.

...

Fear not, the manager added, no one can really order the martini by mistake. The tipple requires 72 hours' notice, and buyers meet with a jeweller to select a gem and with hotel staff to ensure the cocktail is delivered to the right table.

That's a bit worse than the $100 mini-bottles of champagne strip-club owners are always trying to get me to order so I can "share a drink with the lady." And then, you know, hear all about how she's just doing this to pay her college tuition, because, you know, she's going to be veterinarian one day.

Your son's turtle swallowed a nickle and is choking? Well, I can't do anything about that, but I'll give you a lap-dance and the fucking turtle suddenly won't seem so important.

It does give me an idea, though:

Donate $1000 to Ace of Spades HQ and I'll send you a thermos full of Val-U-Rite discount liquor with a diamonelle at the bottom.

Diamonelles-- just like diamonds, at least for retards.

Thanks to Fark.

And If You're Blowing $10,000 On a Cocktail, Why Not Become the Very Quintessence of Douchebaggery and Buy Yourself a $1000 Ice Cream Sundae?: And if you want extra jimmies, for you? Just an extra three hundred bucks.
