Funny bidness -- Dining with the dead


In Funny Bidness we celebrate wretched excess and revel in exploring the furthest reaches of business acumen.

Rich beyond your wildest dreams and still stuck for a holiday gift for your not-spoiled-enough child? We call your attention to the Porsche Kinderbob, the Formula One of snow sleds. Your child will be the envy of his/her private academy when flying downhill on this futuristic product of the legendary European design shop. Best yet, it's the only Porsche vehicle on the market that sells for under $100!

For fans of alternate histories, what could be more appropriate as a holiday gift than a coin from the Union of North America? The Amero is the coin of the realm of the nation that never was, except in the imagination of the coin's designer, Daniel Carr. The beautifully rendered coins in denominations from 1 to 1000 Ameros are available for $9-$1,500 (U.S.)

Finally, for those of you looking for a unique dining experience, you might grab a table at the New Lucky Restaurant in Ahmadabad, India. The New Lucky is built on the site of an ancient Muslim graveyard, and the above-ground cement coffins are interspersed among the dining tables. I wonder where they lay out the buffet?

And you thought you had a long wait for a table...
