Because they can, it's the American way. Basically, it's the same reason Hot Dogs are $4 at the ballpark.

I guess it would depend on how badly you want to spend the evening with a bunch of people you don't even know. Now I've heard that that kind of thing appeals to people and that they're willing to spend money on it. As you can tell, I'm not that kind of person. Enjoy.
