Pyramid Scheme

Burn this solid white candle, and you'll uncover a surprise in the wax-a $1 coin, $5, $10, $20, or even a $50 bill. Consider it our surprise Christmas gift for you. Candle arrives wrapped in gold foil tied with a goldstar garland. Glass quare candleholder (sold separately) will hold a 4 1/2" wide candle. Candle: 4" x 4" x 4". Candleholder: 5 3/4"square. $14.99

Like anyone really believes there is a $50 bill in one of those? As if the folks at Miles Kimball just are rolling in dough and just so anxious to share it with you. To see more posts like this, click "Money" (below).

Don't laugh, but my mother received one of these as a birthday gift.

And, no, there was no $50 bill.

And did she wait for it to burn down? Or did she hack it apart with a kitchen knife? Because that's what I would do.
