Guest post written by my sister:
I was watching tv the other day and on comes a commercial. After my initial reaction, extreme laughter, i said something like "wow that's seriously retarted".
The product is called "Snuggie". It's a fleece sweater-blanket or fleece blanket with sleeves.
Seriously? Who in the world would buy that??
Other than being a total waste of money (you can use a sweater you already have with a blanket you already have), contrary to what the commercial says I view it as very inconvenient.
Imagine you're sitting on the couch sipping your hot cocoa and watching a movie on a cold winter day. Suddenly the door-bell rings. You put your cocoa down and pause the movie, and then realize you're stuck. Rather than being able to just fling off your blanket and run to answer the door, you now have an oversized probably longer than floor length sweater blanket attatched to you. Considering you refuse to answer the door dressed in a giant blue, green or red sack, by the time you get out of the sweater blanket the person at the door probably already left causing you to possibly miss your million dollar check from Ed McMahon.
Again Seriously? who in the world would buy that????
