I mean, leaving aside the fruit fly issues you would have if you just started using raw broccoli as a decorative centerpiece.

I saw this little tabletop picket fence with accessorized with little broccoli trees and thought, “Cute!”

Then I saw the price tag – $138 – and thought, “Not that cute!”

Then I double-checked to make sure they didn’t mean $138 Monopoly dollars, because what the hell?

Finally, my belief that many objets d’art peddled on the internet by the design-conscious are actually pranks is reinforced.
