NY Post - A Garment District hardware store is selling 1200 ml bottles of Purell for $79.
The same bottle retailed for as little as $5.49 before the coronavirus scare.
“We sold about fifty of those today.”
Before selling out Friday, the store also had 2-liter bottles of Purell on sale for an even more astounding $109.
Well god damn. If that ain't as American as apple pie I don't know what is. Everyone scared out of their mind about coronavirus? Then do the right thing and JACK THAT PRICE UP and sell out of it anyway. Hell yeah, Capitalism bitch!
It reminds me of when I used to play Roller Coaster Tycoon and pull the scumbag move to max out the price of umbrellas when it started raining. I don't care if they go on rides, I want every last penny in their pockets. Besides, my roller coasters were prone to crashing anyway and had way too many G-forces every single time, so I was sort of looking out for them in a way.
Purell is sold out on Amazon and pretty much everywhere. Kinda funny it took this to get people to care about germs, and remind me on November 1st when we're back to being ourselves and not giving a single damn about washing our hands at all.
Meanwhile, it's a good day to be the Purell CEO...
And shout out to me for doing this blog whilst shivering under my blankets because I'm on my 5th day of the flu. Just the normal flu (for no reason at all today I wrote 1,000 words about my journey with the flu so far, it's a good read if you're pooping or something).
Anyway, hope you guys stay safe this weekend. Don't kiss a stranger. Eat her butt though. Gosh bless.
Oh and go listen to my podcast because it's fucking good. Yesterday's episode has YouTube superstar Brad Owen. GOAT of poker content. He was great.
