If Only It Would Give You Lottery Numbers ..

It may not look like much, but this may be the luckiest piece of plastic in the world.

Called the "Mexican Snowglobe Pyramid of Luck" by the folks who carry it at retailer Lucky Mojo, this tiny plastic pyramid contains a slew of lucky objects, including the silver milagro hand (representing the hand of God, at top), a floating statue of Buddha (the white thing you see in the middle) an image of San Martin Caballero (the patron saint of wealth) and assorted horseshoes, elephants, lucky beans and glitter.

Lucky Mojo doesn't list a price for this curious collection of religious totems, suggesting that this kind of luck doesn't come cheap. But the rest of the company's merchandise doesn't seem to be too expensive, so if you're in the market for a little extra luck -- or if you just like to see tiny Buddhas floating in snowglobes -- it might be worth checking out.
