Exhibit A - The Pet Rock.
Exhibit B - The Pet Rock App.
Exhibit C - Bottled Water.
Once upon a time water was free. There is a theory out there that bottled water started with a bet. "Hey a bet I could sell water to people." "Um, water is free. Who would pay for it?" "I'll just say it's better than free water." Now, people buy it like it's toilet paper.
Exhibit D - New York City Garbage.
It's not garbage, it's art. What a crock. But for $50, you can buy trash from "New York City". Oh la la!
Exhibit E - Hello Cow
For $0.99 you can buy an app that has this picture of a cow. Touch it and it moos. That's it.
