Well, now a Brooklyn-based artist who calls himself Ju$t Another Rich Kid has made it so anyone with enough disposable income can purchase golden goodies like these.
Ju$t Another Rich Kid and his designer-friend Tobias Wong have a luxury line called Indulgences that includes a 1978 McDonalds coffee stirrer in solid gold.
The duo is still figuring out the price for the gold stirrer but are planning on selling solid gold ball-point pen caps for $350.
Stirrers and pen caps made of gold may sound useless, but Ju$t Another Rich Kid admits some people may use them as coke spoons.
The art project turned luxury line will be available to buyers early September.
