SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- Remember Martin Shkreli? You know, the guy who became public enemy #1 after hiking the price of a life-saving drug by more than 4,000%?

Well, it looks like a group of high school kids in Australia are getting the last laugh. They recreated Daraprim, the exact same drug, for the cant beat price of $2!

Not bad for a bunch of teenagers.

The students spent around $15 to make 3.7 grams of the drug. That same amount costs about $100,000 on the U.S. market.

While most people are ecstatic, Shkreli seems a bit bitter, posting on Twitter that “dumb journalists want a feel good story”.

Sounds like somebody doesn't like the taste of his own medicine.
