Blue collar man buys his own island!!!

October 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

A man in New York City bought a deserted island just off the coast from his home for $160,000.

Before he bought the island, which is called “Rat Island”, he was just a lowly sanitation worker. I’m inspired to see a hardworking blue collar type like me make his dreams come true.

This should remind us all that the American Dream is not dead. I hope that I can buy an island of my own someday.

If I had my own island I would build a cabin where I could drink beers and watch the game, and my wife would never be able to get to the island to tell me to mow the lawn. (Just busting your chops, honey!)

If you could buy any island, what would it be? What would you do with your private island? Do you think it would get old after awhile? Leave me a comment!

Have something to say about it?
