The Two Sides of IKEA

On the plus side, nowhere but IKEA can you buy your own lack for as little as $10. On the minus side, the cost of that lack suggests that the people who manufactured it for you are financially lacking. Still, it's nice to see a corporation providing its customers with the tools to construct a psychoanalytic analysis of commodity fetishism. If only the product weren't so inimical to screwing.
