Bread is being sold for ridiculous money on Done Deal

Alan Loughnane


Supply and demand, my friend…

One of the most entertaining movies of recent years, The Wolf of Wall Street, has a very famous scene.

In order to show them how sales works, Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort pulls out a pen and going around the room one by one, with the instruction to “Sell me this pen.”

Responses vary between: “This is the best pen ever made” to claims that “This may be the last pen you ever have to buy.”

After each one, DiCaprio shakes his head and takes the pen back.  Finally one member of his team grabs the pen from him and hands DiCaprio a piece of paper.

“Write your name on this piece of paper,” he tells DiCaprio.

When DiCaprio looks around for something to write with, the future salesman replies: “Oh, you don’t have a pen anymore. Supply and demand, bro.”

It seems that a lot of jokers in Ireland took this advice on board last night as shoppers moved through stores across the country clearing them of all their bread like a plague of locusts.

It’s now possible to buy bread on Done Deal, if you’re willing to part with some of your hard earned cash, as the ad below reveals.

“Top of the range bread can’t find anywhere in Ireland you won’t get a better offer buy today and receive a free yes free 1 litre bottle of milk straight from the cows tit! Buy now or starve in this weather!”

They’re some messers up in Cavan…
