Deep Thoughts: The Snuggie


I know, I know. I feel like I'm officially on the bandwagon now. But this Snuggie-mania is out of control. People are rabid for it, in a completely mocking "I-can't-wait-to-tell-my-friends-that-I-bought-one-everyone-is-gonna-pee-their-pants" kinda way. Personally, I'm not so enthused. It's not that I don't get it, duh, it's just not that funny to me. And here's why:

Isn't it just a backwards bathrobe? This occurred to me when, after I put on my robe, my son asked me to put his blanket around his shoulders and commented "I wish my blanket had arms." Apparently the creator of the Snuggie also has a 4 year old.

So yeah, Snuggies are lame. We all knew this already. But my 4 year old really wants one, and I'm willing to bet my mother does too. So maybe they are onto something.

UPDATE:

Now, like I said, I'm late to this Snuggie craze, and apparently my thoughts on this are not original (lots of naughty words on this video, not for pussies):

the two best infomercial products ever have to the Snuggie and the Shamwow... i wonder if it's possible to combine the two, and make a single, super-absorbent robe?

I suppose that would be an excellent solution for those who are clumsy or incontinent.

(EW!)
