Warming the world, one lazy wanker at a time

It's a blanket! With sleeves! It's.....the Slanket.

But wait: don't take the cozy-looking guy on the home page's word for it. Learn the science behind the Slanket, complete with diagrams and technical words like "toasty burrito."

If you'd thought of this, you too would be a thousandaire by now, just like Gary.


Oh boy, another thing in life we don't need. Although I guess this is more practical than the pet ghost. At least you actually get something with this besides a cardboard house and an invisible ghost.:-)

I remember in the early 80s getting this comforter-like thing with snaps around the edges. When you snapped them all up, you ended up in a sleeping bag like thing that had sleeves. I wish I could remember the name of it so I could google up a picture of it....
