Also on the list: and "A pet puppy. Border collie with a peacesign coller, and a leash" and "1,000 bucks."
The dad's annotations are not as enjoyable as they'd be if he'd resisted appealing to Deadspin readers by using the f-word repeatedly. Not that I don't use that word. Just that he's interacting with the innocent expression of his young daughter, and — even though she's not reading this (not yet, anyway) — it doesn't work to say things like "The fuck is this?" and "Great. Fucking great."
Too bad, because otherwise this

American Girl Dolls are the perfect Grandmother-to-Granddaughter gift, if you can afford it.Well, you sure can! Here's Saige, the American Girl Doll of 2013, and here's her border collie, Rembrandt, who comes with a leash. Don't know if it's a peace sign "coller." Seems to me that if the father did a little more poking around in Amazon, he'd have figured out that the child wasn't requesting a real border collie, just an accessory for the Saige doll she wants.
File this information away, Althouse, just in case :) Not sure if you can get them through the althouse portal.
And thanks, again, to all who've been doing your shopping through The Althouse Amazon Portal.
