comfortably Numb

Just when I think I have seen it all, something comes along and hits me right between my contact lenses.. My vision is for shit because I am to busy to go get new lenses and glasses...

But even having vision like a bat or a opossum, I still saw this bright and clear.

Now I don't know about you good folks, but when I am feeling chilly or hell down right cold, a blanket, a sweater or heck both seem to do the trick just right..

Now I have never thought to myself as I am curled up in a blanket laying my ass on my sofa that somehow the blanket could be improved upon..Or that it was somehow not sufficient.

I mean if you have a phobia of blanket, I understand, just put on a sweater..or something I wear all cold season long..a hoodie..

I love the hoodie..I don't wear the hood on said hoodie, but I get enjoyment just knowing the bitch is there, just in case..

But the other night I saw something that made me really think about how gullible Americans must be.

Look at what I am referring too..

This here is called The Snuggie. Its a blanket with sleeves...That you...get this..


holyfucktards, you have GOT to be kidding me.

And look, it comes in an array of colors..




ok, just three, but still....

Now I ask the makers this..

What the hell is the difference between this and a bathrobe?

In the commercial it shows a bunch of asshats at a sporting event outside wearing these hitonious things..

They look like a bunch of mental cases.

I mean I don't condone wearing your bathrobe to a ball game in the fall, but I do however recommend a fucking jacket.

Just when I think things cant get any worse...just when i think I have seen it all, BAM someone out does themselves..

And it makes me chuckle..

the snuggie, when using a blanket or a sweater is just not cool enough...

use our snuggie at outdoor sports your tots play in, it is a sure fire way to make sure they will never have a girlfriend or boyfriend..it may keep teen knock ups down..

snuggie, when you just wanna look like an asshole.

I should really charge for the free publicity I am offering.

Scarlet said...

I can't believe this kind of thing is out there! Love the title of this post, btw...it's my favorite PF song of all time.

Seriously now...I just can't get over the pic of Zak Efron on the side there with your comment about the creek. Too funny! (I just noticed it today...I'm a little slow these days!) lol

Back to the Snuggie, I hate to admit it, but I like the blue one. :) I'd wear it to bed in January.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Flip Flop Momma said...

Bella said...

Wow, that's pretty. But I will stick to the hoodie as well.

Flip Flop Momma said...

just_tammy said...

You know someone will be sporting one in Wal-Mart before too long (if it hasn't already happened) and be over-dressed!

Flip Flop Momma said...

very true...it doesnt take much to be over dressed at walmart..good call my friend..

sweets said...

omg LOL... that is just strange!!! and you know what? the "creator" of that stupid snuggy is prolly going to make millions... *sigh*

Flip Flop Momma said...

I dont know, our economy is in the shitter right now...I would be surprised if anyone but Oprah buys one;)

Monogram Queen said...

We bought one of those for my FIL when he was sick.. but he died before he received it.
I think old people like them!

That being said I agree they are kinda stupid..... they remind me of a monks robe.

IamDerby said...

omg I knew this is what you were talking about it, before you even said the name! I have been marveling at this thing for years.

Flip Flop Momma said...

yup...they do look like Monks attire..

really?..the first I saw of this was over the weekend...I had no idea it had been around for years..

damn...I am not on top of things anymore..

You forgot:

Snuggle, when you just don't know what to get your mother in law for Christmas. :)

Choppzs said...

It's a thick moomoo. In case you don't know those are the tent dresses women wear in Hawaii. Either way, they are both hideous! I'd point and laugh at anyone I saw wearing one.

Flip Flop Momma said...

your hired....

Me 2...trust me..right to their faces..

Cat said...

I have one!!! Holy Crap!!!

Only kidding! Bless my cotton knickers!!


JoeinVegas said...

Does it come in brown? Then it would look like the old monks robes. Maybe some flourscent colors, so that you stand out? Or print team logos on them, then you know it will sell big.

Haphazardkat said...

My Hubby and I saw the same commercial, we laughed soooo freaking bad at it. Especially when the woman got up to make a cup of tea....hysterical. I asked the same thing, "what's wrong with a bathrobe"? Doesn't get in the way like this f'ing backwards ass thing!

Flip Flop Momma said...

AMEN sista...amen..

Anonymous said...

oh yeah...there's one out there also it's actually got foot things- i mean seriously- nothing can replace my little throw thingie that i use- i don't want shit on my shoulders when i snuggle.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Mrs K,

Sarah said...

Because a blanket is just too...slippery and inconvenient. Damn those blankets!!!

Tom said...
