"Sliders": Why have restaurants embraced such a disgusting name?

A major topic of conversation on my trip back home last weekend was the new brewpub down the street, and their amazing sliders -- a menu item that, I had to admit, was ruined for me by the food writer at the newspaper where I work.

Fancy restaurants have no business putting something called a "slider" on their menu, and he often makes a point of reminding people where the term supposedly came from: "Slides right in, slides right out." Here's his latest rant:

Okay, gross maybe, but does anyone know more about the origin of this term for the mini-burgers?
