I'm pretty sure those are what those Heaven's Gate suicide cult people used back in 1997... remember that? Nike runners and purple blankies?

of course i remember! and cults are the first thing i thought of when i saw this. its so creepy!

and i have an issue with it being one size fits all. like it could fit a really huge person, but there was a child swimming in one. can they not at least make a child size as well?

Ugh. I'm sorry you had to find out about those. Though I was reading on a blog somewhere . . . I'm procrastinating so I'll just find the exact quote for you lol

From the Glark.org comments: “My suggestion for everyone who wants a Snuggie but is trying to cut costs in these tough times: put your bathrobe on backwards. You’re welcome!”

Boredmando is right. A blanket with arms is basically just a bathrobe on backwards, isn't it? I find a "sweater" is also effective.

who is this glark.org? is that his first name? im going to check him out if he is able to make such a laugh out loud bathrobe joke!


i also like katrocket's sweater idea. i'm not sure if it will catch on quite as well as the Snuggie, but we shall see!

This is high technology for people that can't master blankets and clothes together. I love infomercials where the people are trying to show you how difficult the "old way" is. Blankets, spatulas, juicer's it's hilarious

i must be really highly advanced as a human, because i can actually master TWO blankets of approximately the same size, working together so they BOTH cover my WHOLE body. with blanket to spare, in fact! and, since these aren't concrete blankets, i'm totally able to move my arm to change that dang TV channel.

oddly enough my remote and ps3 controllers work THRU the blankets!!!

those Snuggie infomercials draw in my attention like a magnet, though i haven't gotten the point of actually buying one yet
