Now Selling Indulgences...er, Blessings, for just $180!

Got this in an email from the Belzer Chassidim. It seems that they're now overtly selling indulgences - sorry - kvitlach - via the internet. The sad part is, they really do great Chessed work in Israel. It's a shame when they have to resort to such sad tactics.
My favorite part of the picture: the blatant bastardization of the passuk, which in the real Torah reads - העשיר לא ירבה והדל לא ימעית - "the rich may not add and the poor may not subtract." It seems in Belz they have no problem with the rich adding, as long as the poor guy pays his $180 for his kvittel too!
