blog #216 >> Snuggie, the worst idea ever!

Out of all the things I could be blogging about right now, I just had to pick this. I can't get it out of my head! Maybe I'm the only one who hasn't seen this commercial yet, I do pretty much live in a cave. And I've been watching a lot of Hulu lately. But this is the best thing I've seen on t.v. in forever. Snuggie! The blanket with sleeves. I laughed 'til I cried. Then I looked it up on YouTube and laughed some more. There are just so many witty, funny, ridiculous things I could say about this commercial. It's a blanket with SLEEVES! So basically it's a robe that you wear backwards. It's outrageously priced. And on the commercial I saw it was $20 so you'd better get one while they're cheap. Then you can embaress your kids at their baseball game. Or use it on Halloween as Uncle Fester, a monk or a Jedi costume. And I love that they're using every conceivable trick to sell this thing. "Babies? Check. Puppies? Check. Saving Money? Check. Happy Family? Check. Glittery Graphics? Check... Let's see what are we forgetting. Peace Poster? Check. Yep, I think we've got everything, let's call it a wrap." So, buy a Snuggie and join the cult today... or I guess, you could just go put on a sweater.

Wait what about knitting? What about not having to work at your chilly office when you can just work from home with your laptop curled up in your Snuggie? What about using them for the church choir in drafty old country churches? There are so many possibilites...

Don't worry, I'd never heard of them either.

My nephew got a Snuggie for his birthday. It's ridiculous, but comfy.
