Why super bowls, you may be wondering, beyond the terrible pun? Perhaps for some perspective; the entire purchasing power of these exorbitantly priced heirloom bowls (which include an original Picasso) would cost a bowl collector the equivalent of about 6 seconds of Super Bowl commercial airtime. Just something to think about while you crush a warm 6-pack and ponder the nature of the advertising-industrial complex this Sunday.

Or maybe this was just for the terrible pun. Enjoy the game!
