Snuggies are selling like hotcakes.

http://www.getsnuggie.com/

The Snuggie™ keeps you totally warm and gives you the freedom to use your hands. Work the remote, use your laptop or do some reading in total warmth and comfort!

Snuggie™ 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.

A despondent America takes to the couch. I predict that sofa accessories will be the hot new trend - especially ones that have some money saving feature.

Snuggie needs a holster attached to the end of the sleeve to house a remote control.

It also needs cup holders...lots and lots of cup holders.

Any defrosters?? Not pushing here, but Maine has had some really cold temps recently, so electrical warming could help sell the the extra-large backward bathrobes.

I'm going to make one for my cat.

The Slanket has already been tested in Maine - http://www.theslanket.com/index.php?path=news&month=092008#23

The people in those pictures scare me; especially the one in pigtails and an Apricot Slanket. And isn't there some sort of law against talking on a cell phone while wearing Apricot Slankets?

More like a cult.

If you go to Slanket or Snuggie party, do you have to wear anything underneath? I mean, is your backside going to be exposed?

These parties are filled with as many party-goers as they are with protesters from the other sect. The protesters usually show up with front- and back-sides exposed, and carrying boards that say "I'd rather go naked than wear a snuggie/slanket."

Is there a belt around it so your behind doesn't stick out when you stand up??

I'll need a place to put; my pen, my remote, stash some goodies and a place to keep my nachos warm. :biggrin:
 
  • #14
yes of course you can stylize it in any way you like

does anyone else smell spam cooking?

I was just thinking this morning (when I passed a shelf of "breast cancer awareness snuggies" at Walgreens) that I need to market a nursing version of the snuggie.
 
  • #17
That's a really awesome idea!

You could wear it backwards. But then it would just be...a bathrobe.

Looks like there's enough room in that for two people. :biggrin:

Because those look even stupider than a snuggy. :biggrin:
Unless you're joined at the waist like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Chang-eng-bunker-PD.gif" .

I'd prefer one of these to a Snuggy: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/4535479.pdf

How come these never caught on?

Now they won't have to design clothes for their muppets.

I think you could easily hide a baby under the snuggie, and nobody would know what you were doing under there. :biggrin: That might actually be one good use of the thing. At least it won't be falling off your shoulder while you're trying to nurse if you're concerned about modesty.

Can we get matching Snuggies for the Sisterhood? Maybe with a logo or something.
 
  • #27
Ack, the local radio perves did a show where they interviewed some guy that had a Snuggies sex positions website. Noooo.
 
  • #28
I guess that could be kinda useful in cold climates.

Re: the Slanket-Snuggie battle.

The traditionalists in the poncho camp are beside themselves over this issue, feeling sidelined. Word is, they are considering a flanking maneuver to garner media attention.

Okay, Sisterhood. Did anyone check out this guy?

http://www.theslanket.com/index.php?path=the_product"

We probably have to acquire him somehow, just because.

He looks like a monk. I suppose we could find use for him.

I think if they simply stated that they even care it would bring all the amusing national attention that they could ever want. I can just see it, they could fight it out like HD and BluRay...

There are uses for unconscious monks?

My cat thinks so. She loves the laps of living people who are very, very still.
