Fun With Economics

In my sheer and utter boredom, I’ve taken to reading Defamer, a combination of entertainment industry and celebrity gossip written in a style that makes me stunned it doesn’t collapse under the weight of its own sarcasm.

However, they do a public service by pointing out the warped economics of stardom, by comparing celebrity-gift-basket cost vs. employee cost at Entertainment Weekly.

Underlings everywhere are getting out their calculators and figuring out how many gift baskets their annual salary can buy.

Rest assured, I definitely don’t even come close to buying one.
