I was bemoaning a couple of weeks ago to friend and secret Signifying nothing reader Elisa the Snuggie that allows you to look like a blame fool in the privacy of your own home:
Elisa was aghast at this product (which she had seen advertised on television), so much so that I threatened to buy her one. I know she secretly wants one. Who doesn't want to look like a gaudy Capucin monk watching television, knitting, cuddling, or reading?
Yet again given the artic blast we're going to experience this weekend, the Snuggie might not look that bad.
Nah. It is the clothing epitome of "Put a Donk on It."
Thanks, Signifying, for outing me as a snuggie commercial watcher. For the record, I saw it at the gym, where I was a captive audience stranded on an exercise machine. Now that I've seen Snuggie's web site, though, I highly recommend you click on it to hear the mini-infomercial. Not only do I want one; I NEED one in all three colors--burgandy, royal blue, and sage green. Now with free book lights!ReplyDelete
Shoot, Elisa, I imagined you glued to the TV 24/7 watching all the latest in infomercials!ReplyDelete
You might note, as well, that Snuggies are two for one (with the reading lights)!
Does a Capucin monk look anything like a capuchin monkey?ReplyDelete
Actually the other night while up reading late and freezing (the heat is pre-programmed to go down to 62) I could have used one of these. Instead I had a blanket over my shoulders that kept bunching up, making my neck stiff. Probably such a night where this product was borne. I think they should certainly call them Monk-wear.ReplyDelete
who wouldn't want one of these?ReplyDelete
Ok, while I'm in an expletive move: get a fucking sweater!ReplyDelete
