We've all had superiors who've taken pride in putting us in our place with menial tasks: Bosses. Teachers. Mom. But, if legends hold true, no one does it better than Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. Want to relive those moments of spine-tingling horror? Gawker points out that the marketing geniuses behind R.J. Cutler's "The September Issue" -- the documentary that goes beyond the garment bags of Vogue magazine -- are offering downloadable ring tones.

Yes, that's right. Now everyone at Starbucks can watch your PTSD in action when your cellphone chirps the sound of an assistant's crushed dreams with "Anna Wintour's office." Or, better yet, dash thoughts of eating that bagel away with Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley: "It's a famine of beauty, honey -- my eyes are starving for beauty."
