One of the great things about being a millionaire must be not having to divide everything you want to buy up into other things before you purchase. For instance “I could buy this sweater, but that’s like, a week’s worth of food shopping” or “Yeah I could buy this bottle of wine in a restaurant, but I could get, like, five times that amount in the off licence”. Or when you return from holiday and immediately tell anyone that asks how much an average beer costs so they can gauge the general economy.
Hannah K. Lee, who creates some pretty outstanding and genuinely funny editorial illustration for The New York Times, has come up with kind of the most “I can relate to that” zine ever. I don’t need to explain this to you, just look at the pictures, and maybe buy one for a friend of yours who has been known to do what it says on the cover.
