Yay! All my work is turned in for the semester! I plan t get back to writing some stuff worthy of posting here and stop just stringing you along with a bunch of borrowed (yet still worthy) content. But this last month has been a bitch. Yeah, yeah, promises, promises; I know.
Not sure how I could have possible missed this breaking news a few weeks ago, from the Chicago Tribune...
"We thought, imagine the vision of 1,000 people walking down Clark Street wearing Snuggies -- this is what we wanted to make happen," said Kuthy, a 23-year-old Lincoln Park resident and co-organizer of the Snuggie Pub Crawl planned for downtown Chicago on March 21.
Naturally, this led to a website.
Less than a week after the launch of www.snuggiepubcrawl.com, [site founders] have e-mail addresses from more than 450 people interested in wearing the $19.99 Snuggies -- buy one, get one free, along with a free reading light -- for a blanket-covered, bar-hopping adventure.
When I think of person drinking beer while wrapped in a blanket, I think of a homeless guy with a 44 ounce Hamm's cleverly wrapped in a paper bag.
"This is so wrong, but it feels so right," one commenter gushed on the Web site.
If you say so.
[h/t to Kowieski for this, via a Facebook status link, and his FB friend Erik for this comment: "Read the article. I can't imagine going to a bar in a blanket. Your blanket dragging on the sticky beer floor... sick, man." My thoughts exactly.]
