    I wonder what Christmas morning is like in the homes of the Consumer Reports editors. For their kids’ sake, I hope it’s somewhat less joyless and spartan than that gift guide.

    A $70 string trimmer?? Ok, I admit to having no clue about tools, but I”m picturing a fancy gizmo that cuts off stray bits of string that hang from your clothes, towels, etc. Please tell me I’m wrong.

    String Trimmer = Fancy nomenclature for “Weed Whacker”

    …even Mom hates it

    I think she meant, “even if Mom hates it.”

    And hey, what’s joyless and spartan about wine, anyway?

  6. That list is mad boring, yo.

    Maybe not. If I was Mom and I got the Kenmore Progressive vacuum cleaner as a Christmas/Channukah/Kwaanza gift, I would be feeling the hate on that blessed package-opening morn. No “if’s” about it.

    If I were Dad, however, I may very well be feeling the vacuum cleaner, and feeling it real long-time. That sucker is hot.
