Have You Joined the Snuggie Cult Yet?

BabyD has been agitating for a Snuggie. It’s a blankie with arms basically and she has fallen completely for the idea of shuffling around the house in fleecy warmth like a midget Branch Davidian. She even has visions of expanding her cult to include Rob and I because according to her the arms would allow us to remain glued to our keyboards in total comfort.

I wrote a 50 something piece about the evils of the direct to consumer marketing that spawns such things as Snuggies and ShamWows and during my research I discovered that this Snuggie thing is not only making someone insanely rich during these dark economic times, but it has inspired quite a bit of venomous response.

Check out my new piece and Stumble It, okay?
