Misuse of Money

Fiorella is shocked by how much money people will pay for pop culture items--for instance, three mil for that dress blowing up above Marilyn Monroe's knees in the famous subway photo.

In the first place, an item such as this isn't of any lasting value, like, say, jewelry or art are. Who will remember Marilyn Monroe a hundred years from now?" In the second place, if people have that much money to toss into the ring, they should use it for the benefit of all, like setting up businesses that will aid the economy.

When Fio reads about people throwing money around on stupid collectibles, her IRS mantra becomes, "Soak the big spenders."
