Round Out Your Super Bowl Weekend with These Super Bowls

Why super bowls, you may be wondering, beyond the terrible pun? Perhaps for some perspective; the entire purchasing power of these exorbitantly priced heirloom bowls (which include an original Picasso) would cost a bowl collector the equivalent of about seven seconds of Super Bowl commercial airtime. Just something to think about while you crush a warm six-pack and ponder the nature of the advertising-industrial complex this Sunday.

Or maybe this was just for the terrible pun. Enjoy the game!
