"Around here, you used to be able to get a Fair-Trade latte and a chocolate-chip croissant for only eight bucks," said Getz, who is planning to move back in with his parents after being forced out of the lease on his organic grocery store by a harpsichord purveyor. "Now it's all tearooms and private salon gatherings catered with champagne and suckling pig. Who can afford that?"

I love the Onion!  :D 

I'm not sure I'd want a duke wearing bejeweled footwear...it would make me wonder whether he was of the lavender set, if you know what I'm talking about. ;)

oo come on Tonya, you don't want a boy with fancier footwear than you?  he sounds so pretty!

Kimberly,  the Onion writes satirical faux news articles, so it's not for real. :)

The Onion's great!

But nothing is sacred there - it's definitely not for the easily offended.

But Valerie, if they insist on wearing fancier footwear than I do, then there's absolutely no chance their going to want to do anything fun...and messy!   Gah!  They'd probably insist on being fully clothed - now where in Zeus's name is the fun in that? :D

Ha ha, I have heard of The Onion, but never really knew anything about it.

I'm glad it is just a joke.  I was worried that this was really happening :-)

Tonya - you're 100% right! Where's the fun in being fully clothed all the times with a dishy duke?! ;)

What's really scary is when I read something, think "This has to be the Onion," and then it turns out to be real.

The onion is quite a hoot.  I'd like one powder-wigged jewel buckled Duke to go please. Can I super-size that?

I admit that I wasn't 100% sure if it were serious or "stupid".   Now I am pretty sure that it is/was seriously stupid!

LOL   ;-)
