Only $65.  Oh come on, it's from New Zealand.  Now pony up. /S

I refuse to buy this product unless it's certified raw, organic and gluten-free.

Except, apparently, for the souls of the merchants.

The Orc and SheepShit "flavors" are a bargain, I've been told. It's the Elf version that is super expensive... Lothlorien.

Will Gandalf deliver? Or Radagast/Nazgul for the El Cheapo versions?

This kind of thing is popular in China as:
* a conversation piece, particularly on social media (WeChat)
* way to bitch about air pollution
* status symbol ($$$)
* expensive gift

So yes there's a market for this kind of thing ;)

When I was 12, my friend brought me a can of "Florida Sunshine" from her trip. It was cute, but I doubt it cost more than 49 cents.

It could almost be a thing for the ultra-wealthy, but then they apparently "triple-filter" the air, which presumably makes it identical to any other highly filtered air.
