How You Know The Holidays Are Coming

That’s right folks, you too can own this beautiful 103” Plasma Screen Flat Panel Television. What would you pay for such an amazing television? $100,000, noooo; ok, $80,000, nooooo; $70,000, noooo; how about $69,999.95, plus if you buy now Panasonic will throw in an unprecedented 3 year in house limited warranty. Who the hell is lining up to buy this?

You can’t live in it.
You can’t drive it.
You can’t invest in its education so that one day it will become a productive member of society.

You sit there and look at it.

That said, I can understand buying a 37”, 42”, even a 50” Plasma screen TV. It’s not really the price even though I can’t afford to drop $69,999.95, it’s just a monstrosity. My brother-in-law just bought a 42” Plasma and he has it in a decent sized room in the house, but it’s so flipping huge that it’s almost uncomfortable to watch.

This TV will actually be available in the United States this Christmas so get in line.

I'd rather have a 15" portable and a check for $69,945

Hey, I take no responsibility for any weight gain by viewing my blog! :)

Make's you wonder. I think some companies make products ridiculously expensive as a marketing ploy for the more moderately priced goods in their range. Once you see a TV for $69K, it makes you think that you are getting a bargain for 'only' paying $10k.

I finally figured it out. 103" is big but doesn't look as big as the tv in the picture. The "guy" standing next to the plasma is an out of work Oompa Loompa. I'm happy to see that Panasonic is helping the Oompa cause.
