A Tumblr blog called Rich Kids Of Instagram chronicles the excess of today’s spoiled, wealthy, braggarts using hastags like #mansion, #myownbowlingalley, #ferrari, #versace and others, are publicizing their every indulgence.

Dude, you are being over charged for your Patron.

As you can imagine the Rich Kids of Instagram is wildly successful. It feeds our American obsession with freakish over-self-indulgence.

Scarface much?

I can’t tell if this is an actual photo from someone’s actual house or someone’s personal Total Recall experience.

Jeeze, this place is a pigsty.

Would love to see what these guys are up to in a few years…oh yeah, the’ll be doing the exact same things they are doing now, but with Viagra.

When I look at these pictures all I can think is that these people are dumb to be advertising that they are wealthy to every criminal and scam artists on the Internet. A hacker could trace their Instagram account back to their home computers, or hack their cellphones. It just doesn’t seem very smart to be sharing those kinds of images, but I guess the personal risk is outweighed by the pleasure and self-satisfaction of gloating or bragging to friends and strangers on the Internet.
