YOUR 15 MINUTES: Overpriced Shit

New York restaurateur has cooked up the world's most extravagant pizza - a $1,000 pie topped with six kinds of caviar and fresh lobster. Nino Selimaj, who runs six pizza restaurants in the Big Apple, on Wednesday unveiled the Luxury Pizza, a 12-inch thin crust topped with caviar, lobster, crème fraiche and chives. Cut into eight, it works out at $125 a slice. Selimaj said Nino's Bellissima in Manhattan, the only one of his restaurants to offer the dish, needs 24 hours notice for the gourmet dish because it orders the caviar in advance. "But where better to experiment with pizza than in New York where people love their pizza?" he asked. If diners are still hungry after the Luxury Pizza, they can always head over to nearby restaurant Serendipity, which sells a $1,000 ice-cream sundae called Golden Opulence that is covered in 23-karat edible gold leaf.

...or they can wash it down with the $10,000 martini at the Blue Bar at the Algonquin (comes chilled with a diamond at the bottom of the glass). Or for lunch you can have the pizza and then you can go to Fleur de Lys at Mandalay Bay for dinner and have the $5000 burger. In its' defense, it's: a Kobe burger containing foie gras, a special truffle sauce and is served on a brioche truffle bun - it comes with black truffles and a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1990 poured in Ichendorf Brunello stemware imported from Italy that will be mailed to your home when you're done. The Petrus 1990 itself is valued at like $1000 ...or if you if you order it without the Petrus, the burger is $75. ...but I'd rather have a martini with a diamond in the bottom. I'm sure I'd swallow it by drunken accident and have to wait a day to shit it out. But seriously, add that all together and that's like 34 pairs of shoes or like 12.5 purses or like 210 pairs of shoes and 418 purses depending on your taste... or lack thereof.
