SkyMall's Late Spring 2013 Catalog: The Good, The Bad, and The Bananas

Travel season is nearly upon us. Whether that means lazy beaches, bustling cities, or serene forests, there's one thing we know we can count on to get us through the transit: SkyMall. No use denying -- we know you read the Phoenix-headquartered publication, too.

Yes, there are approximately one million better uses of time on a flight (reading a book, talking to your neighbor, staring at the ceiling), but somehow this catalog always makes its way to our laps before we've touched down at our destination. And when a passenger on the plane doesn't have a copy of SkyMall in the seat pocket in front of them, shit goes down.

So consider this an ode to our guiltiest pleasure of the summer months. Because the worst of SkyMall is what keeps us coming back for more.
