Buy Your Own Lady Gaga Meat Dress for $100,000 (Video)

It was bound to happen, I suppose. Lady Gaga's infamous VMA dress--yes, the one comprised entirely of cuts of raw meat--aroused just enough outrage, intrigue, and general consternation that someone decided to copy it and sell it to the lucky public. For $100,000. The thing weighs 85 pounds, and according to this meat-dress's creator, it's not "tacky" like the one Gaga wore. This meaty gown is made of the finest cuts of porterhouse steak, as you can see in this video:

Take it from the poor waitress cum-spokeswoman for the disgusting concoction, who tells the Daily News how she feels about the dress: "Heavy. And greasy. And gross. But, you know, it is what it is." And then, perhaps remembering that she's supposed to be selling this thing, adds regretfully, "I like it."

At this point, the whole meat dress debacle really needs no additional comment -- but this opportunistic ploy to cash in on it just serves as a hearty reminder that we live in a society where people are willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars to drape cuts of raw meat over themselves to get attention. God bless America.
