If you had the financial wherewithal or means, would you ever pop a pill for precious poop? Well, late New York artist, Tobi Wong and Ju$t Another Rich Kid, aka Ken Courtney, in 2005 first created a swallowable 24 carat gold pill that will reportedly “turn your innermost parts into chambers of wealth.”
The gold Pills were launched then by Wong and Courtney as part of their ‘Indulgence’ line – an art project that comments on society’s ‘ever-expanding market of luxury items’.
But the artwork has experienced a recent resurgence from a website named CITIZEN:Citizen and for just $425 (approx. N) per 20 mm pill, you can turn your excrement into a precious mineral but it’s unclear as to how much gold excrement this will yield.
However, the golden pills are “currently unavailable” on CITIZEN:Citizen’s online store, considering the fact that to the super-rich who indulge in bizarre luxurious splurges, the pills will be sold as quickly as they are placed on the shelf.
