Abu Dhabi Defies Parody

In a development almost too delightful for words, Abu Dhabi has reinforced its commitment to luxurious absurdity with gold-dispensing ATM machines.

Laughing in the face of world-wide recession, and specifically neighboring Dubai’s hubris-driven financial ruin, the Emirate now boasts Gold to Go ("The Gold ATM") kiosks in the lobby of the Emirates Palace Hotel. The ATM monitors the price of gold and offers plutocrats their choice of bars or coins, each packaged in a black velvet gift box.
