Designer Skateboard!

Yeah, we know. Times are tough. As the world plunges ever deeper into the worst economic recession since the Great Depression in the 1930s, penny-pinching skateboarders buy blank decks and huddle around garbage can fires under bridges. But none of that stopped French luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton from releasing a Stephen Sprouse graffiti skateboard in an edition of three that comes complete with a hard case monogram trunk.

The price, you ask? Oh, just a mere $8,250. That may only be bus fare to Bill Gates, but to your typical American, that's about four months worth of mortgage payments! You may not be able to live in a house anymore, but at least you can flash a big, confident hobo smile as you carry around the ultimate bling-in-a-case! And you can sleep easier (on the sidewalk) knowing that the proceeds will go to charity! (Hopefully, a charity that will give some food YOU.)
