I don’t know about you, but there are certain things that I try and dodge every Holiday break — Family Matters marathons, my wife’s morbidly morbid cousin (who I like to call “the Angel of Death”), fruitcake — but this year, something kept creeping up on me and no matter where I turned, I couldn’t escape it. Gaze upon the horror of…the Snuggie.

Everywhere I looked, every channel I changed to, I saw that ad. And it tasks me. I can’t decide if those people are all members of some crazy-happy death cult and this is their last day before Ascension or if this spot was filmed at the winter residence of the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and they’ve got a whole host of super-comfy hate-robes on hand for family retreats.

Or if there are really people in this world who can’t navigate their way around a friggin’ blanket.

Oh, the horror…the snuggly, Snuggie horror.

Anyone else creeped out by this garment? Is there any chance that you would ever actually pay good money to wear one?
