The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is out now. It was actually more subdued than usual (that pesky recession!) but it's still outlandish. And expensive. And just plain weird. There were a lot of things I could've featured on here, but to give you the full scope of how ridiculous this company is, I present the Customized Cupcake Car:
No, you're not seeing things: those are motorized cupcakes... with matching hats! What does one do with such a "wonderful" piece of machinery? Why, take it to work! Crash a parade! Make the neighborhood kids jealous! With a top speed of 7 mph, it would be perfect for any of those activities. But you haven't heard it all yet--each cupcake car is a mere $25,000! Why waste your money on actual transportation when you can have one of THESE?
If you want to see Neiman's description for this, read it here. Prepare yourself for phrases like "double-infinity forever cool." And they're being completely serious.
