With this banana I thee wed

A jewelry store in the NSW city of Bathurst now stocks, along with plenty of carats, that other great status item – fresh bananas.

With every engagement ring, W J Coote and Sons is giving away its usual bottle of champagne – but buyers also are getting a gift-wrapped bunch of "yellow gold".

Store owner Sam Coote said the idea came to him as he was shopping at the weekend.

"I was basically walking through the supermarket with my wife and people were buying lettuce, tomatoes, carrots – and one banana," he said.

"I thought, this is getting ridiculous. They're the type of thing that you associate with a jewelry store. They're now a luxury item."

So Sam went out and bought dozens of the post-cyclone Larry luxuries at the luxury price of $3.65 a banana.

Now, along with the diamonds, necklaces, sapphires and rings, the business features gift-wrapped bunches of bananas in the window.

"I've got a sign saying 'the bananas are under video surveillance at all times'," he laughs.

The price of bananas is expected to turn the corner soon as fresh post-cyclone stock is ready for harvest.

Another benefit of being an amputee

Here is another benefit of being an amputee … if you like a firm pillow, you always have one available.
Follow-up note When sharing this with a co-worker, he replied:
"...with that in mind, maybe you should purchase the pillow top leg"
I just had to include that here

So much for Monopoly money

MonopolyHave you heard the latest in Visa’s rush to get in front of kids via product/name placement?  How about doing away with the cash in the Monopoly game and replacing it with an electronic banking system?  That is the case in the latest version of the game being distributed in the United Kingdom.  The new card, which resembles a debit card, is inserted into a small plastic reader/writer that can display and update the balance on the card. Traditional money is gone altogether, though purists can still purchase the original version.

Look at the bright side, now you don’t have to worry about the honesty of the banker!

You can always print your own Monopoly money if need be, and it would make great wrapping paper if you like.

Anyone else impressed with this video?

Video Made the Internet Star is a wild video of four guys 'singing' while using 8 treadmills for their chorography. Sounds unusual and it is, but well worth one look at least.

(the window that opens is resizable, if you want to make it larger or smaller ... enjoy)
