Just got back from Big Lots while making my weekly Arugula and Wagu Beef run and they had a big stack of handsomely boxed limited run Obama commemorative plates for $2. They used to sell for $20+S&H on TV. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Even though they were placed on an endcap at the front of the store, it didn't look like they were moving.
Anyone want to wager this rather embarrassing remaindered stock vanishes very quickly due to an "anonymous" bulk buy?
The helpful commenters at AoS offered some intriguing potential "recycling opportunities" for the discounted plates.
• Christmas presents for anyone who voted for Obama
• Cat Plate!
• Dick Cheney Cardiac Rehab: Skeet Shooting
• The Obamabilia Museum
• Indonesia bought them for the state dinner when he visits next month.
• ObamaCare bedpans
• Step 1: Buy 'em all up. Step 2: Donate to charity. Step 3: Write off as charitable deduction at pre-electile dysfunction price. Step 4: Profit (until notice received from IRS).
• Appetite suppressant
