A Valentine’s Day gift for the Ayn Rand doofus in your life

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Despite a rave in the Georgia Straight, the recent film version of Atlas Shrugged failed to set the box office alight, and its sequel—Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike—did even worse (and never opened here).

      If you can spare a little heart and maybe $489.95, then the poor out-of-pocket Objectivists who mounted this doomed cinematic enterprise would probably appreciate it if you’d purchase some of their tacky merchandise—like the lovely 14kt gold Atlas pendant and necklace pictured above

      Imagine seeing that little baby resting on the milky bosom of the granite-willed psychopath in your life. And there’s a lot more where that came from.  No, really, they’re sitting on a fucking warehouse of this shit.

      (With thanks to Dangerous Minds).

      Thank you. My wife already got me a present, however I think I will buy one of these as a gift to myself. Thanks for pointing it out!

      Wow if I had only known about these a few days ago - My wife and I could have had his and hers medallions! And now there is no real gifting holiday until December! Maybe for Easter.

      Why wait for Christmas or Easter? Take a sociopath to lunch on March 6 (Rand's deathday) and surprise him/her with this bauble.

      I don't see why a sociopath would want it. Sociopaths really go for Nobel Peace Prizes.

      Granite-willed psychopath? A bit harsh.

      More like a harsh bit.

      RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating.

      It's also easier than familiarizing yourself with your enemy's material.

      It doesn't matter if it makes a penny. What matters is that it was made. It will live forever. The movie industry is it's own worst enemy. It's run by people with no feet because they are constantly shooting themselves in the foot.
