Keeping It Classy: ATM Dispenses Gold Bars

May 14, 2010


Because finding a rich person with class is like finding a bum with clean underwear that toots diamond dust, there are now ATMs that dispense gold bars.

Abu Dhabi's top hotel is upping the ante in the race for Gulf glitz: adding a gold-dispensing machine.

The ATM-style kiosk in the Emirates Palace monitors the daily gold price and offers small bars up to 10 grams or coins with customized designs.

It's the idea of a German entrepreneur, Thomas Geissler, who began testing the cash-for-gold machines in his native country in 2009. The Abu Dhabi debut on Wednesday is billed as the first international foray for Geissler's "Gold to Go" brand.

Seriously, this is what we've come to? What ever happened to hens that lay golden eggs? I swear, rich people piss me off so bad. Unless you are, in which case I think you're the cat's meow camel's hump. Be my sugar daddy?

Hit the jump for a video of the POS.

Thanks to rafa.rico, JoeLickaSack and Brian, who are holding out for ATMs that dispense sense. Homonym joke! I've been drinking!
