Cult robes

I told some of you about this, but words really fail to describe it, so here's a link to the "Snuggie" - the blanket with sleeves!

Tell me the bit with them sitting around in a circle cooking s'mores doesn't look like a cult gathering.

Uhm, yeah, my favorite part was the whole family wearing them at the sporting event. That wouldn't draw any remarks. And then the one-size-fits all claim while showing the little girl with about 2 feet of extra sleeve flopping around at the ends of her arms. LOL!

Thanks so much for posting this, Brien! Now I can cross one really hard-to-find item off of my shopping list. As soon as my followers have obeyed my command to order one (Royal Blue), all we'll need is a bucket for the Kool-Aid, matching Nikes, and the arrival of a comet. Oh, and I need to remember to send off that letter to the news media reminding them to refer to my apartment as a "compound"...

Ok, in a bit of irony, I actually got an e-mail selling these today. How strange is that?

Amazing. So how about cluing the rest of us in on the big cultural trends coming up in 2009?

One enthusiastic site noted, "...this needs to be a national phenomenon....the Snuffie is machine-washable, so there is absolutely no reason not to wear it out to a bar".
