SHOW # 1592 OCTOBER 17 2012

"Hola,
 
Would you spend ANY money on a 20- year- old gallon of barbeque sauce?  How about $10,000 on a 20- year- old gallon of barbeque sauce?  Well, back in the 90's, McDonald's introduced the McJordan... a burger named after Michael Jordan... which was topped with "McJordan" barbeque sauce.  For reasons we can't explain, someone still had a jug of the stuff and they put it up for sale on eBay.  For other reasons we can't explain, someone spent $9995 for it.  If you think that's stupid (you're not alone) we have a list of the top 10 things the federal government wasted your tax dollars on, including robot squirrels, a study on Gaydar (seriously) and pottery classes for Moroccan residents.  You can't make this stuff up.  Anyway, anonymous eBay bidders and the feds aren't the only folks to make terrible decisions with $$$.  We all have wasted money on something that seemed like a good idea at the time and occasionally, we actually spent money on something that benefitted us.  WHAT WAS YOUR BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY OR YOUR BEST INVESTMENT?
 
Spent a lot of money on stuff like Pokemon and Magic:  The Gathering... initially regretted it, but after selling it on eBay, it's all good
 
Has spent thousands of dollars on Legos... for himself.  No regrets
 
Says that graduate school was a huge waste of money.  I don't doubt it
 
Best investment was his house and his guns, his worst investment was his ex- wife.  I think he should say that his WIFE was a waste of money.... making her an ex was worth it
 
$7000 for his wife's breast reduction (she went from a 36 TRIPLE D to a 36 D)... not happy about it (for the obvious reason) but bought a bunch of gold for $200 ounce in the 80's... he's up about $20,000 on the gold
 
Spent $60,000 on his wedding, but is now divorced.  On the other hand, he bought a superman comic at a garage sale as a kid for $5... it's worth about $10,000 now, or 1 6th of his wedding
 
Spent $3500 on Nike's "Back to the Future" tennis shoes... sold them for $5000 later that day
 
Spent $2000 for pieces to build his own guitar, now he's going into business doing it.  Might have to look this guy up
 
Spent $1700 on a new mountain bike... stolen the next day.  He got about 10 miles of riding on it
 
$10,000 to get married, $15,000 to get divorced
 
Worst investment was his house because bought when a lot of us did- right before the recession.  I got killed on my house too.
 
OK bitches, I'm outta here.  New Originals practice tonight, and if you've ever seen us, you we need the practice.  We'll be playing with Queensryche on October 27th at Snoqualmie Casino.  Hope to see you there.  Should be fun.
 
Until tomorrow, touch it but don't grab and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
