SNUGGIE? It’s a Bathrobe Worn Backwards for Pete’s Sake!!!

Who comes up with this stuff? Geeze. I want to go on record saying I hate the Snuggie and I cringe everytime the commercial comes on. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the Snuggie a big cumbersome bathrobe worn backwards? Is someone making money off this stupid idea? If they are it proves people will buy anything. And they probably are. I hate these types of commercials. No one in these type commercials can do anything. Nothing. Nada. They struggle with the simplest tasks (putting up a TV tray, wiping a counter, etc.) and have this gosh awful look on their faces. Like they’re in intense pain. Morons! And always on these commercials you get something free… but wait, you get TWO of everything if you order now. The book light must be irresistable. “Gotta buy a Snuggie, gotta have that book light!” Wonder what sales would be like if they sold the book light and threw in a free Snuggie. “Gotta buy a book light, gotta have that Snuggie!” Let’s see… $19.95 + $7.95 P&H. That’s almost $30. At least the package and handling is reasonable. Have you seen how high S&H is on some of these products? Sheesh!

There are certain parts of the commercial that are particularly irritating to me. Like when the woman struggles on the couch to stay covered up with the blanket. (Get a bigger blanket dummy!) Or when she has trouble pulling her arms out to answer the phone. Oh, she looks so pained. And what about when the whole dorky family wears their Snuggies to the ball game? Did you notice you can see their backs exposed to the cold because the thing doesn’t close? (And I thought my mom made me wear some embarrassing things growing up.)

Blankets are OK but they can slip and slide, plus your hands are trapped inside. (Trapped? Isn’t that bit of an overstatement?)
Stay warm from head to toe with the Snuggie Fleece Throw. Made of super-soft, thick, luxurious fleece with oversized loose fitting sleeves, so shoulders, arms and upper body remain protected from the cold but arms and hands are free to use your laptop, TV remote, read a book, talk on the phone, eat a snack and much more.
(Wouldn’t a nice warm bathrobe do the same thing?)
Super Soft, Luxurious Fleece, One-size Fits All. (So when they go to the game the kids have to wear one as large as Dad’s. Sounds like there’s the potential for tripping and falling.)
Plus you’ll get our super-slim, totally portable (totally portable? As oposed to a book light that isn’t portable? Or is partially portable?) Book Light with each Snuggie absolutely FREE! (Wheeee!)

I will admit this to you. I don’t know why, I don’t have a use for one that I can think of yet, and I know the commercial is corny as all get out, and they guy is creepy with one eye bigger than the other, but I want a SHAMWOW! And I want one really bad!
