Oh just look at all the low-brow drama,

I don't know about how you silly peasants go about but I prefer to eat on
the raw naked backs Swedish models while attended by many more dressed in
full maid regalia and ending every word with "Yes Master, Galactic, Lord,
Sean-san, His Holiness". For food I'd take my usual, something you'd
consider out of reach and nearly extinct cooked to perfection by world class
chefs flown to work on delectable specimens. All of which I usually have
served on gold foil plates and decorated with giant black pearls that shall
only be used once and thrown out after. Then for entertainment we order half
a million dollars worth of cocktail for the neighbors of my private estate,
most of which we won't eat, which then we throw out in front of masses of
homeless mixed with trash and poison then burned to a black crisp just to be
a tease.

Of course I am a considerate human being given the current economic
circumstances, so how about I tone it down with some hors d'œuvre, Canapés,
saffron, diamond and sevruga caviar, white truffle, wagyu beef, La Bonnotte
potatoes, with edible 14 k gold leaf Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, and
then wash it all down with Louis XIII Remy Martin cognac?

Come on fellows, lets say we do it at my seaside California estate or
perhaps my new New York Upper West Side penthouse? Both are easily reachable
by a combination of limo, private jet, and helicopter.

Ta-ta!
