Got money to blow on a money clip?
1. Luxury brands have a tendency to take ridiculousness to another level. Jill Sanders’ paper bag clutch was one of the biggest trends a few years ago. Nordstrom tried to sell a rock for $85 during December 2016. Well, Prada might have taken the cake. Prada is selling a paper clip for $185 at Barney’s New York. Yes, a paper clip. Technically, it’s an Italian-made money clip with Prada embossed on the side.
2. If you want to save $30, you can purchase a Barney’s New York paperclip Money clip. The oversized paperclip isn’t the most efficient way to carry your money and other loose papers. But luxury brands charge a hefty price for staple objects.
3. So, you want a $185 paper clip?

Gene Simmons trying trademark rock hand gesture
1. Gene Simmons, KISS frontman, is trying to copyright the “sign of the horns,” a popular hand gesture. He claims he used this hand gesture first November 14, 1974. Hand gestures have been trademarked before. Dimond Dallas Page has his "Diamond Cutter hand gesture” trademarked and 3OH3 had to settle in after being sued by Page in 2010.
2. Hand gesture is popular with rock fans, but it’s also a common sign used in American Sign Language. Some Mediterranean cultures use it to ward off the “evil eye” or bad luck. It’s also an offensive gesture in Latin and Mediterranean countries, where it implies your wife is cheating on you. But wait, there’s more. UT Austin, Northwestern State University, University of South Florida and at least eight other universities use the same or similar sign in athletic and spirit events.
3. So does Simmons have a case?

Surprisingly, Dead Men Tell No Tales raked in $77 million over Memorial Weekend. Even though it’s the second lowest opening in the Pirates of Caribbean franchise, it didn’t sink like Baywatch. With just a $23 million opening weekend, the Paramount adaptation belly-flopped even with an all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. Even Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 beat out Baywatch with $25.1 million in its third weekend.
