IN the top 10 at least…



Well, maybe not so much tasteless as wildly inappropriate. Or am I being too sensitive?

Yeah, that's one of the tackiest things I've ever seen. Commemoration my ass, they're just trying to cash in on a huge tragedy.

Oooo, you mean I can pay twenty dollars for an inconvenient version of twenty dollars?

Also, note that the box shown at the end is sold separately for an extra ten.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

There's a collector's market for this type of thing. They've already released a coin version a couple years ago…



It's cheesy, but people buy it, so they'll make more.

A dollar bill?
Made completely out of silver?
Bigger than a regular dollar bill?
With the numbers in the corners adding up to the value of the bill?
And it has the Freedom Tower on it?

Not only is practical and convenient, but you can also show it off to your family and friends in a box! Sure, it may be like showing off a regular 20 dollar bill, but this one has the date of when the towers fell on one side (911) and on the other side it shows the year when America will finally begin construction on the freedom tower (2020).

Who could say no to that?!

Reminds me of when we came up with a poppy quarter over here in Canada for memorial day and stuff. Except that they didn't use horrible advertisements or sell it. We just used it as a normal quarter.

I just called the 800 number to let them know how disgusting I thought they are for doing this. It's all automated! No real people to order it. Gee I wonder why?

That actually is an idea. I'll keep calling the 800 number. It will cost them $$ every time I do!

I hate that ad, it's on every morning. Just when you think it's about to end, it seems like the commercial starts all over again.

That's weird. Do you think there will be many people buying it?

I remember that, it had metal from the towers, apparently.

Just makes me wonder how many of these sorts of things were sold.

I thought it was a sketch!

I bought ten of these because I support America, unlike you liberal faggots and you hippy “art” website. How about you just fly over to Iraq and make out with Osama while Obama takes pictures oyou an d afart

Come on…we're talking about people who make commemorative plates after an assassination.

The ad isn't tasteless, the item being sold is tasteless.

It looks so great holding down all these pesky papers on my desk.
