This post is for my husband who disbanded his blog and now has no outlet for his rants. Except in his wife’s ear.
One word: Snuggie. One spectacular marketing slogan: “The blanket with sleeves.”
You’ve seen the television commercials showing people lounging on couches, watching TV, reading a book, playing board games, etc. Each unbelievably shivering cold. Each terribly annoyed that his/her throw blanket keeps sliding down. Each completely incapable of properly setting the thermostat or adding a sweater. Each causing Husband to snort and mutter, “COME ON! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?”
Per its Web site, Snuggie, the blanket with sleeves, “keeps you totally warm and gives you the freedom to use your hands.” You can “work the remote, use your laptop or do some reading in total warmth and comfort! The Snuggie™ Blanket is made with super soft, thick, luxurious fleece with roomy, oversized sleeves that let you do what you want while still being totally wrapped in warmth.”
And now, because the burgundy, royal blue and sage green colors aren’t stylish enough, Designer Snuggies are available in zebra, leopard and camel prints! Extra awesome.
The very similar-looking, now “designer” commercials cause Husband to snort and mutter, “DESIGNER SNUGGIES? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!”
If you act now, and you’ll receive 2 Snuggies plus 2 booklights for only $19.95. Extra doubly awesome. Which reminds me, someone’s birthday is fast-approaching, and I can’t think of anything that will keep him warmer during the chilly Toronto winters…
