Word On The Souk #2

In the spirit of worthless citizen journalism, we ask YOU today’s important questions

In the spirit of pointless citizen journalism, we ask YOU the important questions of the day.

This week: The world’s most expensive cupcake, costing AED3,700 (and that’s without the gold tray and other bullshit), has just been unveiled in Dubai. What do YOU think about it? Is it humanity’s final sugary straw, or a really good thing?

Olya Doplidenko
This is exactly what we need. If Greece perhaps stopped smashing plates for one second and instead made the world’s most expensive greek salad or something, perhaps they wouldn’t be in this mess.


Helena Buffet
To be honest, I think it’s quite insensitive. Perhaps we could chop it into bits and send it to Africa or something. Actually, in the interests of transportation, perhaps it should be sent first and chopped up once there.


Feras Tamann
I just hope it’s gluten free.

    With regards to Olya’s comment: If the Greeks had looked after their crockery instead of breaking it after every meal, maybe they wouldn’t be in their current financial state!

    Absolutely totes fantastic idea. I mean what’s the point in living the high life out here, if we can’t splurge every once in a while, and treat ourselves? We have so many daily battles to face. There are only so many handbags a girl can buy. I, for one, will be first in line to purchase multiple varieties of said cup cakes – I won’t eat them of course / it is bikini season! – but plan of shipping them home, 1st class of course, to rub my peeps noses’ in my decadent lifestyle. Fabulous dahlings.
