While idly browsing through Buy.com’s web site today, I came across a “hot deal” for a wooden spoon.
$16.40 for a wooden spoon? You’ve got to be kidding! Tack on shipping and it’s nearly $23. Do people really pay that much for a wooden spoon? Sure, it’s a Paderno wooden spoon (I guess that means something), but really now… Just do a Froogle search and find a perfectly good 18” wooden spoon made of beechwood for $2.59. Even better, buy a dozen of those beechwood spoons for $1.99 each (plus shipping, of course).
Consider your options:
- Spend $23 and have one wooden spoon for yourself.
- Spend $33 and have one wooden spoon for yourself and one wooden spoon for 11 friends.
Don’t insult grandma and buy an overpriced wooden spoon. She wouldn’t be happy.

How does that old saying go? I believe its: A fool and his money are easily parted.
