America So Broke We're Even Scrimping On Fake Stuff

How sad is it that America is now so broke we can't even afford the good knockoffs? "The shift in the counterfeiting industry, which costs American businesses an estimated $200 billion a year, plays to recession-weary customers looking for downmarket deals, the authorities say." Pretty sad, I'd say, while glancing down at the snazzy green, white and orange Tommy Hillfinger (TOM) watch I scored for $10 in Chinatown yesterday. (Says it's just after 3:30 local time). On a related note, while not technically a "knockoff," it's true that back in February I sat for a full torso Ed Hardy tattoo just to save money on expensive t-shirts this summer.
