Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, 53, the bishop of Limburg, Germany (no website translation), reportedly spend $42 on the remodeling of his residence.

Among the expenditures:
  • $474,000 for carpentry and cupboards
  • $610,000 for art
  • $135,000 for windows for a private chapel
  • $34,000 for a conference table 
  • $20,000 for a bathtub. 

A $34,000 conference table?  Here's an exampleFor a $1,000 more.

A $20,000 bathtub?  It's the ultimate soak.  I'm sure that's what the bishop's parishioners are saying, too.
