“Don't hold your parents up to contempt. After all, you are their son, and it is just possible that you may take after them.” - Evelyn Waugh

Considering that the compilers of gift lists have long loved "the man who has everything" and his companion "the woman who has everything" it seems fitting that they have procreated to create "the child who has everything". Granted "the child" is going to be a blasé little bugger who's going to pass out from ennui before they hit puberty but, in the meantime, Barneys has them covered for Christmas.

My favorite item from Barneys gift options...something that works for every member of the "has everything" family...a 14k gold plated Slinky. One of those items which, even though you can take a step back and admit is over-priced and completely unnecessary, would nonetheless be lovely to find in your Christmas stocking...lovely and (say it with me) sliiiiiinky.Photobucket

    i can say 2 things with certainty - 1. my parents are nuts, and 2. i would be pissed if someone spent $50 on that slinky for me.
