You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

2-6-09 They’re warm, they’re cozy, they’re great for sacrificing homeless men and hitchhikers to the fungi from Yuggoth… they’re Snuggies!

From the Desperately Trying To Find A Bridge From The Previous Post Department:

Well, Shanoah, since Deadheads are a cult… or maybe because cults often result in lots of dead people… desperate panting… yeah, they’ll buy that, that’s the ticket…

Anyway, you’ve probably seen the TV commercials for a bemusing afterbirth of our consumerist culture called the Snuggie. You don’t know what Snuggies are? Why, it’s a bathrobe! That you wear backwards! Kind of like those robes that you wear in the hospital! And we all know how much fun hospitals are!

If you’ve ever seen a Snuggie, I instantly saw how useful they are. Why, I can read a book in my Snuggie! Pet my cat in my Snuggie! Go to exciting athletic competitions in my Snuggie! And, when I come home, I can sacrifice the prostitute that I’m holding prisoner in my basement to the Snake Demon in my Snuggie! Oh, it rubs the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again…

I’m not the only person to notice how useful Snuggies would be to someone who spends way too much time at the Psychic Eye store. Peter Coffin (site here) even remixed the Snuggies commercial to appeal to an heretofore untapped demographic: the mindless cult zombie demographic.

And the red ones are great for sacrifices. Those pesky blood stains just disappear.
