Slate Rates Magazine Wish Lists

Brendan I. Koerner, a filthy, treacherous rogue if ever one set lies to paper, disembowels a staple of the publishing world’s holiday half-assing it: Holiday Gift Guides. It’s an idea very similar in execution to our stunning, fully-assed efforts here at The Consumerist in our “The Bathroom Scale” series—eerily similar.

You’d think this sort of piece would have been published earlier, so as to be more use to those buying magazines for gift ideas. It’s almost like Mr. Koerner just got the idea.

We’ll be expecting something nice this year, Mr. Koerner. Perhaps a bottle of expensive Scotch, as recommended by New York magazine.

* We don’t actually think Slate ripped us off. But we would like the Scotch.
