Amused and Apalled

Satire is best when your not sure at first if it is satire. But what if you are convinced it's satire and then -- just maybe -- it's actually real?

The GF sent me a link to this product:


Yes. That is the Snuggie for Dogs.

You may recall the original Snuggie. It dominated the night time airwaves a few months back. It's a blanket with sleeves. It's a great purchase for the person who can't figure out how to wear their robe backwards. I guess I can see the appeal, though. The commercials do make it sounds compelling.

But now someone may have actually made a blanket with sleeves for dogs.

When I started watching this, I thought it was a great satire of the commercial for the regular Snuggie. But now I'm not so sure. The order form and other links look legit.

I'm afraid -- so very afraid -- that this might actually be real.

Please, restore my faith in humanity and tell me this is fake. Or at least that he product bombed.

Because I don't know if I want to live in a world where the Snuggie for Dogs qualifies as a million dollar idea.

attention!!!!! all dogs, cats, bunnies, guinea pigs (well maybe not guinea pigs..lol) should rise up against their masters and slap them silly if they try to put them in one of these!!!

This is seriously messed up. Unless you have a hairless dog,it's already wearing a snuggie. It's called fur.

The stuff for your pets industry is huge.

Daisy, oh Daisy? Do you have a snuggie?

Your Daily Cute said...

Oh, it's real... at least I think it is. I've heard about it, but haven't really looked into it.

And it's true -- people will buy anything for their pets (I'm one of them)! We're suckers for our kids. :)

And I second Pricilla -- if Daisy doesn't have a Snuggie yet, she probably needs one...

@Blog Queen: I think the cats are well into developing their overthrow plans.

@Buggys: I think it is.

@Kathy: I did see a news story about someone who made a wet suit for a bald penguin.

@Pricilla: Now Daisy could make it look good.

@Your Daily Cute: May I should start making pet accessories.

@Miss Beckala: That's awesome. Thank you.
