Buying One Should Be The First Thing You Get Fined For

Zooey Deschanel's current TV show New Girl, has something called "The Douchebag Jar". Basically if you act like a dick, you have to put money in the jar.
An American clothing company, Urban Outfitters, is now selling the jar.
And people are buying it. An empty jar, with a money slot in the top, that retails for $8. I can understand buying one of those money tins that you can't open just by twisting off the lid, because those are probably really hard to make. This is just a normal jar. For less than half the price you could buy a jar of spaghetti sauce, and after you've used it to make some delicious spaghetti, you can wash the jar, cut a money slot in the lid, and put on a sticker labelling it a 'Douchebag Jar'.

If you go to a store a buy one pre-made, your change should automatically have to go in the jar.

There are some real douchebags out there and they are usually making money out of dumb ideas. I wish I was one of them.
Stumbled on your blog. I really like it. BTW I bought the same pink ice cream maker the other day.$85! Haven't taken it out of the box yet but you have inspired me to do so. Maybe I'll use it too.

Thank you Marcie. give the ice cream maker a try. It's way better than the store bought stuff.

That's gotta be a rip-off when you can make your own from any jar just cut a hole in the lid after you've enjoyed the product inside, some people are really gullible :-).

Some people are really dumb. An empty jar for $8? Places like the Reject shop sell empty jars for $1.
And those money tins that need a can opener to open them. I bought a new one of those today. Money tin, not can opener. I like your spaghetti sauce jar idea too, except I use my jars for other things.

.... Sapphire and I recorded 'New Girl' off British telly but found out that it was episode number two. We lasted around ten minutes before deleting it.

Sorry but it has me stumped as to why you would buy such a thing. As the saying goes one mans rubbish is another mans treasure!

I agree, that is just another way of parting fools from their money lol.

It's nice to know we all agree how ridiculous this is.

I used my ice cream maker and I have included a link to your ice cream post. Hope that is OK, if not I can remove it.
I love the ice cream maker

Hi Marcie,
I don't mind at all. Glad you love your ice cream maker.
