What do you do when you have a billion dollars and you just can't busy yourself for an afternoon? Well - you pay $US161,000 for a 3.3 pound truffle you don't even want.

Best quote from Sir Wu actually "I had no idea these truffles were so prized and in fact, I don't really like the smell of them...My wife likes the taste and last year a Hong Kong lady bought it (the year's biggest truffle), so I thought it would be a good idea to keep the tradition going."

And thank GOODNESS he did have the good sense to keep that tradition going. After all, what would have become of us all, everywhere - particularly those, I don't know - starving in Darfur for instance - if he hadn't?
