Forget Gold, Invest In Yellow Cabs

So, the world is ending. Time to buy gold! Or is it?

Instead of mining your grandmother’s mouth so you can afford to buy milk and underwear, if you have the means you should be looking to that other expensive bit of yellow: taxicabs. Last week the city auctioned off three taxi medallions, two of them netting a record $705,000 each. To put that in perspective, that’s like one Casey Anthony trial or one Rick Perry home.

Just a matter of time until Glenn Beck starts pushing this shit. (Photo: Sugar Sweet Sunshine/Flickr)
