This article is a bit different from the usual "look at these rubes spending more than they can afford," this is full-on "I'll take the Land Rover when it's too rainy for the Lambo."

Kudos to the woman who tried to simulate being homeless by living on the streets for a few days, although I couldn't quite tell if that was part of the reality TV bit they mentioned.

More jaw-dropping than your average mustachian comedy article.
