These prices are crazy, but if people are paying them then should we care? It is like so many other things, the moment they become unavailable everybody wants one, (that would be such a good adverising slogan for Viagra.)

Having said that if I had one as a fathers day gift and found out that the price then the first sentence would be 'how much?' The second would be 'you must be made of money.'

I'm off to Finland next week. I seem to remember seeing them over there. If I do, I'll grab some and sell them here at a more reasonable price if people want them. However, part of the beauty of them was the extraordinary value for money. Even if they work out to £2, plus postage, that puts them at £3.50. Is that still worth it.

My other hobby is fountain pens and old handwritten documents. Montblanc used to make an ink in Britisg Racing Green, it cost £6. They stopped production and if you can find one it will cost £100. 20 years ago Parker produced anink called Penman Sapphire, they stopped production because it blocked pens. It cost around £4, very difficult to find, even an empty bottle will cost £20, a full one and you name your own price.

There is a line in Three men in a boat where the three men decide that some tinned pineapple would be nice, they discover that they have forgotten to pack a can opener, they try every way they can think of to open the can, even hitting it with a rock. Because they couldn't have the pineapple they have an all consuming passion to eat what they cannot have.

Men want what they cannot have, ask a woman.
