The Retardation of America

Have you seen the commercial for the Snuggie? Apparently its "inventor" has made millions. It's a shame I didn't patent it back when I was eight when it was called PUTTING ON A ROBE BACKWARDS.

I cannot BELIEVE that idiots across America bought this fucking thing. Then again... when I was leaving for work the other morning, I noticed that Mike's neighbors had just put out their trash. They had purchased not one, but TWO Snuggies. Which doesn't surprise me in the least. They are the lowest common denominators around here, what with the two fat kids who torture their dog and the fat dad who swears at them constantly with words and phrases that would make a sailor blush.

So I took pictures. And laughed my ass off.




But really, the whole things reminds me of really bad infomercials, which reminds me of the clip below, which makes me laugh. So even though the Snuggie is beyond retarded, it reminds me of Tracy Jordan and the fact that "Meat is the New Bread."

My family did a white elephant gift exchange at Christmas, and my brother ended up with a Snuggie knock-off. It was called the Hug Sack (hehe!). The jokes were endless.

Do you look at your old posts?

Heather said...

mush - Yeah, and I saw one like that for the Snuggie that made me pee.

I go back and look at old posts once in a while. Sometimes I thin out the old ones - get rid of poorly-written ones or whatever. Why?

I was curious to know if you would see my post about the snugwow. That's all.

Heather said...

mush - I get an email alert for each comment, so I'll know about them regardless of the age of the post. Neat, huh?

mush - Oh. My. God. That is disturbing.

mush said...

But is it as disturbing as this?
