This is the stupidest thing I have read this year yet! Selfridges in London has 'created' the most expensive sandwich in the world at £85 per sandwich.

Yes, that's £85 or US$148 or CA$170 or AUS$202 or EUR122

Are we just living in an obscene world? what possesses people to pay that much for a sandwich?

Sorry, just had to have a little rant!

What in the heck is on this sandwich?!?!?!?

Make your own!

· Two slices of freshly baked sourdough bread
· Roquette dressed with avocado oil
· Confit of sweet peppers and grain mustard
· Unpasteurised Brie de Meaux cheese
· Sliced English plum tomatoes
· Fresh lobe foie gras
· Wagyu beef - a densely marbled meat from a traditional Japanese breed, which retails at up to £500 a kilogram

Reminds me of this one.....................

The world's most expensive cocktail went on sale in Britain this week costing a whopping £15,250 per glass.

The drink is a mix of champagne and a number of expensive liquors but the reason for the enormous cost is what is found at the bottom.

Delicately placed at the bottom of the glass is a 6 1/2 carat pink tourmaline and diamond ring.

Rich drinkers who would like to sample the extravagant cocktail can purchase it at an exclusive Manchester restaurant situated near Old Trafford - the football stadium of Manchester United.

The owners hope a number of rich footballers that frequent the establishment will be tempted to splash out on the drink to impress their girlfriends.
