Gift Guide: Buy Patton Oswalt's Lifetime Ice Cream Supply for Charity
From Movieline's 2010 Holiday Gift Guide
In celebration of its 75th anniversary, Carvel Ice Cream handed out 75 black cards to different celebrities (you know, the people who really need these sorts of things) that are good for a lifetime supply of ice cream from the chain. Well, technically it's good for $25 per week in ice cream products, so if you need more than that, keep looking. In any case, Patton Oswalt is auctioning his card off for charity. It may seem a bit pricey, but it must pay for itself eventually right? Let's do some math.
With five days left, the price is at $4,999. Let's say it closes out around $10,000. Divide by the $25 per week the card allows and it looks like this baby will be worth your while after 400 weeks! So assuming you live longer than about 7.7 years, this is a bargain! Also, according the auction, you'll get Oswalt's original card, so it has the celebrity memorabilia thing going for it too. Happy bidding!
