Question for the day

So I got this fancy catalog in the mail this week peddling all kinds of things, including a cheesecake. Here's the description: "Incredibly creamy Madagascar vanilla cheesecake on a shortbread macadamia nut crust--and stunningly topped with a bounty of Fall fruits handcrafted in imported chocolate. 8" diameter. 4.5 lbs. Made in USA."

Guess how much it costs. Did you guess $120.00? Because then you would be right. So here's my question for the day: is any cheesecake worth $120.00? Not including shipping?

Seriously, if I had $120.00 to BLOW, I would totally order this cheesecake just to see.

My gut reaction? No. No cheesecake is worth that much money.

I am always nervous about cake that is described as weighing a certain amount of pounds. I would rather not know that fact, especially since it's often the case that the lion's share of any given cake at my house is eaten by me.

Think of it this way. Would you rather BLOW $120 on that cheesecake? Or on multiple pieces from the cheesecake factory?

I'll make you one for exactly half that much. Think I'm kidding? Try me. (You can even count on hand-crafted fall fruits, but I get to choose which ones.)

I stumbled on a blog that I thought you might be interested in. It has nothing to do with cheesecake, sorry.

Not only that, but it comes in the mail. WTF? So you pay $120 plus shipping and are at the mercy of the delivery man to make sure it remains in that $120 condition. I'm sure they've got the whole shipping-desserts thing down, but still...if I am paying that much for a cheesecake, the chef better come to my house and make it in my kitchen (and then give me a back massage and clean the bathrooms).

I just wish I had GOB here to read out the description. With that voice of his, how could I refuse?
