Sign of the Apocalypse #33: How much for that mint julep?

What can one possibly say about the $1,000 mint julep that'll be sold at this year's Kentucky Derby?

The sweet cocktail will be made with one of the state's finest bourbons and served in a gold-plated cup with a silver straw to the first 50 people willing to put down the cash at the May 6 race.

Mint from Morocco, ice from the Arctic Circle and sugar from the South Pacific will put this mint julep in a class of its own, the distillery selling the drink said.

Um, yeah... Not that this is a culture of decadence or anything.

(Although it all seems to be for a good cause, New Jersey's Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.)
