Mahatma Gandhi was all about getting people to stop obsessing over material things. Which is why these gold cufflinks with his face on them are even more WTF than they would be on their own.

British jewelry designer Theo Fennell is selling these cufflinks for £5,000, which works out to about $8,000. If Gandhi isn't your man, there are also Churchill and Chairman Mao sets. Because if there's anything that screams capitalism, it's definitely solid gold cufflinks shaped like Mao's face.
