Money can be stressful, but nothing quite matches the all-encompassing anxiety you get when there's no money to be had. "More money, more problems" was clearly coined by a wealthy capitalist who wanted to keep the little guy down, because it doesn't hold true when you're living paycheck to paycheck with kids to feed, elderly parents to care for, and collectors calling you at all times of the day. The best way to stay sane in that soul-crushing, down-and-out cycle is by adopting a healthy sense of humor and cackling at relatable Tweets like these because sometimes you just have to laugh or else you'll go absolutely crazy.

This week, Apple released its new virtual reality headset and the prices start at $3,500. Naturally, the company is getting roasted over the price for an electronic doohickey that only has a battery life of two hours. 


Think of all the fun you could have with a giant animatronic dinosaur in your front yard! It would be a hit with the kids in the neighborhood! You could even charge $1 admission to see it, something no one would pay to do with your overpriced VR goggles.


That's about as close as we're going to get to $3,500 goggles, too.
