Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

The cult streetwear brand debuted red and white Supreme-branded Oreo cookies which is just driving people up the wall! Supreme took their own spin on the classic cream-filled cookie, double stuf’d Supreme Oreos were priced at $8 per pack of three. But in the frenzy that ensued by the brand’s limited-edition collaboration, the cookies sold out in just a couple of days. Now they are being resold for $17,000 on eBay!

 

Sweet tooth lovers are apparently willing to pay more than 200x the original price of Oreo cookies. These novelty Oreos are in high demand!

 

 

Both Oreo and Supreme posted about the partnership on their social media accounts. Oreo’s Instagram photo of the red cookies with Supreme’s logo across went viral, of course.

 

 

Supreme actually took to Reddit to tease the release on Reddit six months ago, according to AdAge. It’s pretty crazy to see the lengths people are willing to go for any Supreme labeled product. The brand is known for creating a frenzy and quickly raising prices with their rare releases. There was a Supreme branded brick that resold for $1,000 to a Supreme MetroCard that rose to $999 on eBay. Yeah, that happened.

 

Executive creative director of Within, Zane Comer, told AdAge that for Supreme, the partnership “is a low-risk way to generate earned impressions….For Oreo, associating their product with a brand that has the cool-factor of Supreme also creates legitimate relevance out of thin air.”
