Drew Magary is seasonally bilious.
Every Christmas, Williams-Sonoma assumes youâ€™re horny for tartan. Like you put on a kilt and affect a Scottish brogue and scream AYE YA WEE LADS AND LASSES! WITHOOT BOREDARE LINNUNS, THIS HULLIDAY IS SHITE!!! There must be tartan, and there must also be decorative berries that are poisonous if spotted out in the wild. Thatâ€™s Christmas, baby.

You thought the Star Wars cookware was the end of it. You were wrong. Thatâ€™s only the beginning, amigo. What do you think happens when an entire generation is raised exclusively on Marvel and Star Wars movies, and then ages into boomerdom? THIS. This is what happens.
