Now Sold At CostCo, For The Low, Low Price Of Only $15,999.99

Tyler Durden's picture





 

It hasn't been a good year for discount retailers which rely on the broke US consumer to grow, such as Walmart, Target and Costco, the latter of which in the past has seemingly tried everything it could in the commodity business, even going as far as selling bundled provisions for the apocalypse. Alas, so far it has been unable to boost its margins, and since it is not Amazon where failure is rewarded, or else Jeff Bezos just hypnotizes everyone with his latest money-losing contraption (but, but it has such a great growth rate), it is time Costco tried something different to boost margins. Something really different. Such as selling a Superbowl lower level package for two for the low, low price of $15,999.99.

Indeed: once upon a time getting tickets to the Superbowl was a private affair and usually involved knowing a hedge fund manager, the real life equivalent of Walter White, the owner of Tickermaster, or having participated in at least 10 porn movies... in the New Normal one can simply purchase Superbowl tickets at your nearest discount retailer's website.

From CostCo:

 

So what does nearly half of the median US annual wage get you?

So how long until every other discount retailer offers comparable packages, and in the process commoditizes the Super Bowl to the point where none of the 1% will want to come within 100 miles of a venue where tickets can be bought by the peasantry (thanks to that 5th HU(nderwater)ELOC offered by the Federal Reserve Bank JPMorgan) at a place like WalMart, Family Dollar or your generic, friendly neighborhood 99 cent store?

Ah, the FUN!

16 K to watch games that you can see better at home on your Chinese big-screen (AND, you don't get to see the great Superbowl commercials...).

Oh, YEAH, I want to go to Bloomberg's New York! Sounds like FUN!

What do you MEAN, you got arrested in NYC? What'd you do, anyway? (Oh, I bought a 32 ounce Coca Cola for the Superbowl)

 

Does anyone know which 'teams' are actually playing this year? Honestly, I really don't know. Further, I REALLY stopped giving a shit about 25 years ago.

Say, are they going to have a bunch of disabled Afganistan veterans get up and give speeches about how they called in the drone strikes that killed all those wedding parties, right before Merkuh's freedom-loving C-17's fly over the stadium, firing blanks (and covering the F-16's)? Perhaps, a demonstration of waterboarding, at halftime? How about the DHS search to get in every night? I wouldn't want to miss THIS...for the low-low price of 16 thousand FEDSCRIPS! My shoes are already OFF, and my lap top is OPEN...

More like GAYDIATORS, lads in tight uniforms prancing about and slapping each other on the fanny. Whilst macho men couch potatoes inhale nachos and sit in wading pools of beer stupified as a common game of football is exalted as a moment of crowning glory of iconic greatness.

The gods come to earth but once a year to watch mediocre football and a halftime show that may cause permanent brain damage by its stupefying badness.

And the frosting? The corporations that are destroying the couch potatoes will bring forth yet more moments of corporate propaganda and they will be dazzled and discuss these "important commercial moments" for days or weeks afterwards. They are so brainwashed they look forward to more and better brainwashing.

This then is our culture in full abject fail mode.

Our glory seems somewhat tarnished and our gods are revealed as tired old ponies once more.  America bleeds to death behind a curtain of sheer entertainment.

Who won the toss?

Both the National Basketball Leagugue and Major Leaugue Baseball are stupid enough to have their Championship Tournaments played in the Hometowns of the Teams. That is when you get the riots and the cities actually burn.

 

Since all of the New York Teams are out of the contest..at this point...the odds that NYC and East Rutherford NJ burn to the ground are minimized.

 

What a shame. Burn baby burn. But I hope that Denver burns...

 

(That is if Denver are the ones picked to win as the NFL IS FIXED. The Officials call the game by penalties and through blind eyes to penalties.)

In the 1960's, gasoline WAS $.26 a gallon. Football WAS a popular pasttime. John Wayne WAS the man, and color television WAS a brand-new technology. Women WERE married, and they USED TO stay at home and raise the children, while men USED TO be good providers and USED TO love their families. The meaning of a 'HEDGE FUND' was the money put away by the husband and wife to plant HEDGES around the houses that they USED TO OWN with a 10-year note.

It WAS a spectacular time, as well.
