One of the dumbest things I’ve even seen

Yes, "The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear" is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.  But that's not what this post is about.

This post is about "The Snuggie," an idiotic fleece blanket with sleeves advertised during a commercial break while I was watching "Naked Gun" on Sleuth on Sunday night.

For just $19.95 you can look like an insane cult member while staying all warm and toasty!

Actually, you and your friend can look like insane cult members while staying all warm and toasty because, like so many too-good-to-be-true, made-for-TV offers, the Snuggie is a 2-for-1 deal.

You'll even come away from your misguided purchase at with a handy, worthless book light thrown in for free.

Conveniently, the Snuggie is available in burgundy, royal blue and sage green so you can look your best as you mix Kool-Aid and wait to hop on board the Hale-Bopp comet.

According to the Snuggie commercial and Web site, "blankets are OK but they can slip and slide, plus your hands are trapped inside. The Snuggie keeps you totally warm and gives you the freedom to use your hands."

Just like most of you, I've lost count of all the times I've been wrapped in a blanket and had to scream for someone to come help me get my hands out of the darned thing.  It's a miracle no one has been killed by those dastardly blankets.

I don't know who invented the Snuggie, but they're a brilliant life saver and hopefully there will be a Nobel prize in their future.  It's taken far too long for someone to finally make a stand against the deathtrap known as the common blanket.
