But this just takes the cake. I can't decide if this is absurd and offensive or kind of cool, but I'm leaning towards offensive. An Etsy page is selling a couch with metal and punk patches on it for $5,000. The couch is described as "a large black couch decorated with white paint pen, sewing supplies, patches" and they assure us that this "a respectfully sculpture made by modern artists." But $5,000?! Here's a closeup of the couch:

The one other thing that bugs me, is you're paying $5,000 for a nice couch and then you have to worry about the ends of patches poking at you. So help me decide if this was worth it or not:
