If you have been struggling to decide whether to buy the Olsen twins’ latest limited edition bag, which sells for fifty-five grand and is covered with, uh, prescription pills…

… Or, you know, use that money toward two family cars or a year of college tuition for your child, then struggle no more.  Because we at The Laughing Stork can help you get that coveted drug-dealer chic look for less!   This is all you will need:


Jaclyn Smith Faux Croc Bag (On sale for $19.99 at Kmart)


Assorted children’s vitamins (about six bucks)

Half-eaten pack of Sweet Tarts from your kid’s preschool Valentine’s Day gift bag (free!)

Glue stick (a dollar or so)



  1. Hand the glue, candy and vitamins to your three-year-old daughter, and let her go to town on the purse.
  2. Allow the decorations to dry for five minutes or so, then…


…Voilà!   A $55,000 purse for about $27 (and free child labor).  Carry this bad boy to the next PTA meeting and the other parents will be gasping, “I can’t believe you have the fifty-five-thousand-dollar Olsen bag, but only bought one lousy box of candy for the school fundraiser!”

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
