Feeling Sassy?

I love Snuggies/Slankets, because I’m often bundled up beneath a blanket, trying to watch tv, read a book, or reach for the remote, and I need to be able to use my hands. But let’s face it, while great for lounging, you can’t really schlep around town in a blanket with sleeves.  That’s why I’m glad they invented the Necky. They help protect my neck and chest from the cold, without the annoying gaps of regular scarves! Perfect for taking a walk in the woods, bundling the kids up for school, and enjoying the big game! It even comes in Designer Leopard Print, for when you’re feeling sassy! Don’t believe me? Watch, below:

*Note: I’m not in any way getting paid to promote the Necky, I’m just a fan of this commercial. And designer leopard print.

I’m Easily Convinced

As someone who is easily persuaded, I buy into every infomercial.  I don’t spend money on the products but man, after watching those long adverts I am CONVINCED that whatever product they’re trying to hauk at me is the greatest invention in the world.  Because I have been laying horizontal for the past three days watching TV, I’ve had a chance to see a few, like Bendaroos, which are lame wax like strips and FunSlides, which seem like the most dangerous toy a kid can have.  Despite the fact that these were less than stellar infomercials, I still wanted to buy them.  Duh.  But I got to thinking of which infomercials were my favorite and I came up with these:

The Magic Bullet Part 1 It’s not necessarily the product that is amazing but the characters on this infomercial that really make this one my favorite.

The Magic Bullet Part 2.  IT’S A PARTY!

Kinoki Pads. So much ew-factor going on.

SNUGGIE.  omg it’s SO hard to answer my phone when I’m under a blanket.

SlapChop. It has that creepy CREEPY ShamWow guy, but it’s funny/awkward in that there are so many sexual innuendos and not enough time.  Click here to watch it in Spanish and here to see it being rapped.  People have way too much time on their hands.

Did I miss any?
