Sam's Club vs. Neiman Marcus

The throwdown begins NOW! Seems that the giants of excess (N.M.) and the giants of not-excess (walmart) are going after the same demographic this holiday season: people with too much money on their hands.

Sam's Club is offering up this Fairytale Wedding in their catalog:

For only $198,000 you and your mate can get hitched in Walt Disney World with 50 of your closest friends and family. The reception is backstage amonst the parade floats, the happy couple is announced on a float with a gaggle of performers who sing a song made up just for them. Private fireworks, celebrity wedding planners, four days of being escorted around the parks, etc, etc.

And Neiman Marcus has this:

ACupcake Car for only $25,000. Sure it's artsy and fun and you can "putter about the 'hood." (Really? The hood?) and have gaggles of small kids following you, but you could also take that 25K and feed a small town. Good job for the artist because as we all know it's tough to make a living as an artist.
