We will admit that we can see some value in the whole Snuggie/Slanket thing that has so very strangely swept the nation.
Aside from the fact that the material seems like it would be horribly itchy and people may mistake you for a cult member, we do sometimes like to curl on the couch with a book and a blanket. And this would seemingly give you better coverage. Though we will likely never try one.
The whole phenomenon is odd, but it also seemed to be dying down. Apparently it was just spinning off as we've now discovered (via EW's Popwatch) the wearable towel, some weird offspring that is seemingly being advertised as something you should be totally comfortable wearing in public.
If we ever go to a BBQ and see anyone trying this out, even ironically, we're just not going to be able to handle it. Not every item in the world has to be multi-functional.
Towels are not dresses. They're just not.
