Many folks have sent me the story of the Indian gentleman who spent a quarter million dollars on a gold shirt. Not a shirt that is gold in color. A shirt made of gold.

The best analysis of this amazing turn of events I’ve seen came from my friend Hari Kondabolu on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. Hari’s argument: this is not goofy Indian guy behavior. This is crazy rich man behavior. “He is not Apu. He is Mr. Burns.”
