What does a man need when he already owns a toilet made of solid gold? Golden toilet paper of course. An Australian company called Toilet Paper Man created a special roll of 3-ply toilet paper made out of 22-carat gold! This absurdly expensive roll of toilet paper will flake as you use it, leaving your rear end literally sparkling clean. Whoever buys this gold toilet paper gets it delivered personally along with a bottle of champagne. Price: $1.3 million (1,733,333x the normal cost of toilet paper)

2. Falke Vicuña Socks ($1,150)

Falke Vicuña Socks

People will pay a lot of money for comfortable socks, but this is ridiculous. A Germany company called Falke decided to create a series of incredibly comfortable (and equally rare) socks made from the hair of the vicuña, a wild animal in South America that’s related to the llama and alpaca. Because these animals are endangered, it has become the most expensive fabric in the world. Only 10 pairs of these luxury socks were available for sale, and all of them are brown, because the fabric is too sensitive to dye. Price: $1,150 (460x the normal cost of dress socks)

3. Trek Butterfly Madone Bicycle ($500,000)

The bike was sold at a charity auction in honor of Lance Armstrong’s return to cycling after beating cancer. Price: $500,000 (250x the normal cost of a performance racing bike)
