Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and....Shredded Hundred Dollar Bills?

The Daily Eudemon reports:
The U.S. mass upperclass is taking ostentatious consumption to new levels: eating gold and silver. They’re shavings that are sprinkled on top of food and in drinks. The purpose? Pure show, like parsley, but about 1,000 times more expensive. They say it was popular in Renaissance Italy, which is hardly an endorsement. “Borgia me with some of that gold spray.”

Can this garnishment be far behind? (Call it 'expensive roughage'.)
