James Bond’s nemesis, Gold Finger, had it right. There’s nothing like having everything in gold and I mean everything. Here are the top ten most gold blinging items on the entire planet.
If you want to ride in style, you have to have a gold-plated Porsche. One Russian gent totally pimped his ride with 40 pounds of gold plating. The downside is it definitely won’t reach its top speed anymore but who cares you need to cruise and be seen in this bad boy! A word of caution: I wouldn’t take this shiny baby up to the Walmart and leave it parked for any length of time. Lots of haters out there!
If you’re looking for 14-carat fun, check out the Gold-Plated Original Slinky. It still walks down stairs but probably little quicker because it’s gotta be a lot heavier than the traditional. Everybody loves a slinky, right? Especially, if it looks like it belongs in your safe. Hey, if you get tired of playing with it, I’m sure you can find a way to wear it as jewelry.
One of the things that I think everyone should have is a gold titanium coated pocket knife. You just can’t beat the jaw drop factor when you take it out and flip it open to cut a piece of rope or something. The best part is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to own one either. I personally, like the MTech Ballistic Assisted Opening
but the Smith & Wesson Gold Executive
is a great looking knife, too.
If you really want to preserve a classic, then, just gold-plate it. Someone did just that to an Atari 2600 including its joysticks. Okay, this was some sort of art project but wouldn’t it make your house totally bling just sitting on your coffee table. It doesn’t even matter if it doesn’t actually work.
Toilet and Toilet Paper
Now, let’s talk about sitting on a golden throne. How about having one in your bathroom? Some people want to have everything bling even down to their toilet. And you know you’ve hit the big time when you reach over and pull off sheets of your golden toilet paper to use when you’re finished. Wait, though, why stop there? Just pop a couple of gold flake filled pills, wait a few hours and you can be dazzled as you flush the bling down. I guess if you gotta go, go with style.
If you want the Cadillac of grills (and I don’t mean the one in your mouth), then, it has to be covered in 24 carat gold. You will definitely make a statement in your backyard with this barbecue grill. Just imagine grilling up burgers or steaks with the eyes of all your jealous neighbors blinking from this beast! I mean the bling factor on this is definitely a ten! The only thing that beats it is the Porsche.
Fixed Blade Knife
So what’s just as good as a gold titanium coated pocket knife? How about a massive gold titanium coated fixed blade strapped to your side? Slide it out of its sheath and BLING! Dazzle everyone in sight! My favorite bling fixed blade is the Eliminator Tactical Knife by Black Legion
. It has a full-tang golden blade with a handle that has the perfect grip. The detail that I really like is that the handle has a peek-through hole so that you see the skull that has been cut into the blade.
If you really want to show-off your gangsta bling style, you need to pick you up a gold-plated AK-47. Why not? Saddam Hussein had one and, apparently, Versace has made one. Of course the one from Versace is yet another art project venture so I wouldn’t count on it to defend you in the ‘hood or anything. If you could get your hands on one of old Hussein’s, it might actually offer you bling-bling defense.
If you’ve already got making a grand entrance covered, think about making just as grand an exit. You can’t make a grander exit than in the 24 carat gold coffin. Apparently, you can take it with you! You will be Pharaoh fabulous lying up in this Cadillac of caskets. Folks won’t be lying when they say you “look good” because how could you not surrounded by all that bling.
