I don't care what they put in it - no chocolate sundae should be worth 25 grand. Ever.
But even though the dollar is, currently, in the toilet, that's nothing compared to what it'd cost in, say, Zimbabwe. At the current rate of inflation, you could buy half a normal sundae for about $25,000 Zimbabwean dollars. Check it out (courtesy of http://www.xe.com. I had to hunt for this information.)
