Things that make you go hmmmm..volume 2

Top 5 things that make you go hmmm.......

#1. Your first trip to Costco is like any other important experience in your life: not easily forgotten. Awed by the endless aisles of various packaged foods and commodities, the bewilderment of walking through America's largest membership warehouse club surfaces somewhere between the crab cakes and the caskets. None more so than recently, however, because Costco has announced they will now be selling a diamond wedding ring for the steep price of $1 million.

Their last, larger diamond was sold back in 2005. Appraised at $264,765 and sold for $180,000, the yellow diamond ring didn't come close to touching the price of this new rock that has been valued at $1,601,875.

Sure, it's one hell of a bargain. But one can only imagine the reaction a proposer might get after asking their beloved to marry them:

"Honey, this is such a lovely ring! Where did you ever find such a thing?"


Good thing the nice people at Costco are willing to let you return it, free of charge, as long as it hasn't been tampered with.
