Adding to the list of the most unexpected things to happen in 2016: Neiman Marcus has sold out of $66 collard greens. Yes, we’re talking about the vegetable you can find at most supermarkets for less than $5 a bunch.
As part of their annual holiday catalog, the “gourmet” greens — which come on four 12-oz. trays and serve 8 to 10 people — are “seasoned with just the right amount of spices and bacon.” Oh, and there’s $15 shipping.
The Twitter world was so appalled with the steep price that people began tweeting their disapproval with the hashtag #GentrifiedGreens. But the overpriced veggie may have stirred up just enough Internet outrage that people had see what all the hype is about — resulting in a sellout.

If you were one of the unfortunate souls who missed out on cashing in your week’s paycheck for 48-oz. of overpriced greens, don’t worry, you can still buy $85 (plus $18 shipping) traditional cornbread dressing or $70 (plus $15.50 shipping) twice-baked potato casserole.
And yes, this grants you all the freedom in the world to brag to your Thanksgiving guests how fancy the food is they’re eating.
