IKEA Has A Solution For Trump’s Wall

Ikea Border Wall

With president Trump facing mounting opposition over his proposal to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, IKEA, the Scandinavian furniture maker, has offered a ready-made solution with its Börder Wåll. With a price tag of $9,999,999,999.99, it’s a far cheaper alternative to a concrete barrier.

Presumably, it arrives in a very, very, very long, flat-pack box, with everything it requires to be assembled: 471,612 boards, 313,329 rounds of barbed wire, 3,772,896 of No. 105236 screws and a single Allen wrench.
