Remember when it was simple to buy toys for kids? Those days are long gone, laments Canadian comedian Ron James.

On the lastest episode of "The Ron James Show," James talks about the consumerism plaguing our society. Nowadays, especially at Christmas, it's all too apparent how spoiled our children have become. "Kids haul away loot like they've won Bob Barker's Showcase on 'The Price Is Right,'" jokes James. "It's unbelievable."

He then suggests buying a sled for your kids, but after realizing that it'll be like selling salt water to a person stranded on a desert island, he opts for the latest Xbox 360 game instead.

*NOTE: "The Ron James Show" has moved to Wednesday nights at 8:30 p.m. on CBC. It will no longer air on Monday nights. Watch this latest episode Wednesday, March 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
