    @harvs, I loved Asterix and Obelix! To modify Obelix's catchphrase, "These buyers must be crazy!"

    One of these tales, Obelix and Co, chronicles the events when one particularly savvy Roman tries to beat the Gauls with the almighty dollar (in these times known as a sestertius) rather than violence, by producing a false economy based on artificial inflation of supply and demand of Obelix's stone creations 'menhirs'. As money and riches threaten to divide the Gaulish village.

    The happenings in this historical event remind me of the inflation caused by the radically overstated demand of these Bonds Wondersuits. It would be interesting to rewrite the story using Bonds products rather than 'menhirs'.

    I hope this clarifies my comment. Meanies.

    I've seen some crazy prices for bonds. One particular one was a trucks zippy sold for $160 on a local fb page. I had a heart attack. The most I've paid is $20 and that's because we desperately needed them as ds won't sleep in anything else. Now he's in size 3 I need to get him out of this habit!
