Yeah, a blanket does slip and slide and you can't keep your arms warm if they are holding a book.
Getting up and out from under it and then getting it back on just right is the pits too.

Why carp about the Snuggie when ShamWow, the glorified rag, is selling like hotcakes? This with a spokesman (the inimitable Vince) who looks like something that crawled up out of a bad horror movie. I still can't believe that everyone who saw those freakish commercials didn't just laugh and switch the channel, rather than buy the stupid things at $19.95 a pop.

I think a good portion of the 4 million buyers bought it on a lark, as a sort of gag gift to the self.
It has amassed a certain level of recent pop culture relevance, as many "Is this for real?" products do in America. I'm just curious about the creator(s) of this product. I wonder if it was a serious endeavor or if they realized the comedic qualities from the start. If it's the former, this might be terrifically humiliating.
