SkyMall Monday: Nuddle Blanket

gadling skymall monday nuddle blanketWe can tolerate a lot here at Skymall Monday. We have a soft spot for Wine Glass Holder Necklaces, adult bibs for sloppily eating in the car and, of course, the Edge Brownie Pan. Sometimes, though, products just rub us the wrong way. Sure, we can usually feign enjoyment for the sake of a joke, but not this week. Frankly, we're at our wits' end. Enough with novelty blankets already! The Snuggie stopped being funny years ago. The Slanket was equally terrible. Forever Lazy is an insult to the human race. Why are people so desperate for bizarre, unflattering, poorly named mutant blankets? This crap needs to stop right here, right now. No one should be wearing these things to a ball game (or anywhere outside of their homes, for that matter). No one should be wearing these things period. If you own one, throw it out. If you don't, stop thinking about it. And if you're looking at SkyMall, don't even consider buying the Nuddle Blanket.
The world needs another wearable blanket like David Hasselhoff needs more body hair. Do I care that the Nuddle Blanket has a special foot pocket for keeping your tootsies warm? No! Because we have socks for that. And slippers. And adjustable thermostats that can make our homes warmer. Feet don't belong in pockets. They're not hands!

Did you know that the Nuddle Blanket doesn't have sleeves because sleeves would just get in your way? You know what else doesn't have any annoying sleeves? A regular blanket! The Nuddle Blanket also has a pocket for keeping your remote control handy. You can't just place your remote next to you on the couch. That's would be ridiculous.

Don't feel as angry about this as I do? Watch this sycophant drone on about the Nuddle Blanket like it just cured cancer:



The name tells it all? Really? Nuddle means to "walk quickly with the head bent forward." That's a thing? That requires a word? Oh, wait, apparently Nuddle is a combination of nap and cuddle. Well, now I'm nangry (nauseous and angry). I have never felt so enveloped in stupidity.

The product description isn't doing it any favors either:

Cuddle up with the Nuddle Blanket. It has an exclusive foot pocket to keep your feet warm all year round.

Openings for your arms let you sip, read, write or text without bothersome sleeves getting in the way.

Perhaps the foot pocket is exclusive because everyone else realized that it's a moronic idea. Also, sleeves are bothersome? Not when they're on shirts. Sleeves are only in your way when they're attached to blankets. And blanket with arm holes is just a torn blanket.

Enough with the novelty blankets. Sleeves, no sleeves, arm holes, pockets, whatever, we don't care. Just stop. What happened to us? We use to build fires to keep warm. We were survivors. We were a proud people.

Say no to the Nuddle. Reject the Snuggie. Continue to be oblivious to the Slanket. Don't be Forever Lazy. Resist the urge to be a fleece Spider-Man. Put on a pair of socks if your feet are so cold. But not those toe socks. Man, those things piss me off.
