Things From a Catalog We’ll Never Buy
Item #02–741009 Callie’s Charleston Biscuits
Williams-Sonoma says: “Flaky, buttery, and made by hand by celebrated caterer Callie White.”
Price: $72 (set of 24)
Notes from Drew: That’s $72 dollars for biscuits. At Popeye’s, the biscuit comes free with your order. At Williams-Sonoma, it costs you the rough equivalent of your phone bill. How good could these biscuits possibly be? There’s a threshold past which biscuits cannot improve. Even the best goddamn biscuit in the world isn’t $72 better than a Popeye’s biscuit. Unless that biscuit can make you teleport.
Deadspin took a little break from its sports coverage this week and gave Drew Magary some space to rant about the items in the latest Williams-Sonoma Catalog. It’s pretty amazing. I have to admit that I may want one of the things on his list, but I’m not going to tell you which thing.
