The Slanket

Oh wow.
That pretty much sums up the following picture, or item for sale I found on skymall.com (thanks to my friend Lindsay F (which looking at some of the products makes me appreciate her all the more). I hope you think it's as odd as I did. Secretly I want to buy it.

i can see girls secretly wanting this. my question is .. why model it with a boy in it playing a PSP? Wouldn't a girl curled up with a book be more appropriate and appealing??

What were those marketers thinking?

Oh man .. there's some stereotypes for you. :)

I don't SECRETLY want this... I WANT IT. haha. I think the guy modeling is playing a PSP because it shows WHAT you can do while having this amazing invention on. I can just picture me cuddled up reading a book. Or with my lap top on my lap on a cold day. It's one of those things that is truly odd... but makes you wonder, "why didn't i think of that?"
great post. thanks:)
yea... and i have a card i have been meaning to mail to you for the longest time. maybe one of these days it will make its way to the mail box:)
