What time is it, children? Why, the only time it can be! Time to pick and choose our Christmas delights from this year's Pumblechook & Figg mercantile catalog. Do not quarrel and pretend you want puerile gifts like the magic iPad mirror or the Box of X. They are not listed herein and therefore cannot bring Christmas joy.
This year we bring you our extended catalog featuring edible gifts. Gather ye round the fire for another Yuletide reading of the Pumblechook & Figg holiday gift compendium. But first, fetch Papa a cup of cocoa and port, that we may begin.
Brendan edits articles about booze, sex, and video games for a living, so there's nothing he needs for Christmas. But you can wish him the explosive Yuletide joy of 1,000 Baby Christs on Twitter @brendanmcginley.
As 2013 draws to a close, be sure to check out Cracked's year in review because, well, we know you don't remember it half as well as you think.
