The Snuggie is the new toga. Easy enough to look like a dumbass in without ornament but versatile enough to decorate in all sorts of ridiculous ways, the popular blanket with arm-holes in it (as differentiated from its less popular competitor, the Slanket) has proved an ideal garment for frat boys and sorority chicks alike who require some sort of sheet-like garment to get wasted in -- and that's exactly what they did on Saturday at the third annual Snuggie Pub Crawl. Intrepid photographer of drunks Aaron Thackeray ventured into the fray to bring back these photos for us to make fun of. See the full slide-show here!
At the end of each soul-crushing day at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed karate school of Kawabunga Dude!, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles settle in to watch old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles VHS tapes and wait to die. Luckily, they no longer have to remove their arms from their respective blankets to rewind the really awesome parts.
The high prophets of all Snuggiedom came out to predict the future. The forecast for everyone: Golden Girls reruns and mild indigestion, followed by some farting.
And what could possibly be more rock n roll than footie pajamas' slightly more depressing cousin? On second thought, if that guy is supposed to be Elvis, it kind of makes sense. One gets the sense that Elvis would have been all about Snuggies. On the other end of the pop culture spectrum, we have the "gangsta" Snuggie, which, we're pretty sure at least one of those rap guys is going to be reppin' it Snuggie in no time. Also expected to be a new hip-hop trend: a house number mounted to a wallet chain. What what!
It was well established in the original Snuggie infomercials that showing up to a sports event in a Snuggie was a great way to stay warm and look like a group of retarded druids -- and when you're heaping shame upon your team with your ridiculous appearance, leave no doubt as to which team you're representing. This just in from the Red Sox: Could you just wear a jersey or something?
