Conspicuous Consumption…

There was on a Network show, I believe the Today Show, demonstrating the latest Haute Couture fad, Chocolate and Wine parties.
At one end of the table is a chocolate fountain dispensing White Chocolate syrup, in the middle, Milk Chocolate and at the other end Dark Chocolate.
Each fountain provided at a months’ pay for a Minimum Wage worker. Fresh Strawberries and other delicate fruits flown in from South American nations where the minimum wage is a tiny fraction of ours. Wines that cost at least as much per bottle as a minimum wage worker makes in a week, and the Ever-So-Sophisticated Social Elites delicately putting the expensive berries and other fruits into the stream of chocolate, in a manner sure to show off their expensive jewelry…
“WE are Rich, YOU are not, you must envy us and try your pathetic best to emulate our Overpriviled pampered existence, Dahlinks, so we can figure a way to scam you for even more of YOUR hard-earned pay, otherwise, you’ll figure out that we’re the Societal Parasites we truly are, and hang us from our own trees using our own intestines while we’re still alive!”
