Ten years into the Bush tax cuts, many are wondering—why are the super rich not creating jobs with all those record corporate profits? It's a fair question.
And here's the answer. Clearly the "job creators" can't reinvest their profits in the American jobs market. The important priority is saving those profits for their generous executive bonuses. Then they can snap up the hot new item, the Jil Sander Vasari bag.
Borrowing the surname from a Renaissance creative, designer label Jil Sander offers a look into its latest 2012 fall/winter release with the Vasari Bag. Having presented a black leather Lunch Bag last week, the German fashion house continues with the same rectangular silhouette, however this time crafted from 100% brown coated paper. Appropriate details continue with black letter branding at the bottom of the front panel, visible stitched seams at each side, and two gold metal eyelets at the bottom. The Vasari bag is currently on sale through LN-CC for $290 USD.You read that right. It's a brown paper bag for a bargain basement price just shy of $300.00.
Obviously, with the price of brown paper bags these days, it should go without saying that the Bush tax cuts must be made permanent this fall. How can the very rich possibly get by on a Clinton era tax rate? It's inhuman to expect people to pay more than 13 percent!
There is, of course, a very special place in hell for any human that bought a $300 paper bag. And, by the way, they sold out at this site.
It's perfect for carrying your pepper-spray, just in case you run into a dirty fucking hippie who is camped out in a public park because she has $100,000 in student loans and no job.
This item will also make a handy doggy bag after we eat the rich.
Hat tip, Gawker.
