my snuggie


Guess what my father-in-law and his wife got us for Christmas?  That’s right.  A Snuggie!  Perhaps you’ve seen the commercials during college football games and have considered getting one.  Go ahead and take a few seconds to click on the link and watch the commercial.  It’s quite enticing.  And the men look so…manly in their Snuggies.  Like they’re ready to expel tobacco juice into the nearby spittoon.

So, how is the Snuggie?  NukeDad asked me on Twitter if it’s warm and makes me smile while reading a book.  But of course!  I twist that thermostat dial counter-clockwise as soon as I don the Snuggie, just like in the commercials.  And I smile about it, because I know my Snuggie will protect me from the frigid climate found in my Mancave.  In fact, I’m so damned happy to be wearing this faux monk robe that I grin when my Sweetwater 420 freezes in its bottle and becomes undrinkable.  What do I care?  I’m in a red Snuggie!  I match my Mantuary’s walls!  I coordinate with the crimson jerseys the University of Alabama football team wears as it travels downfield in high definition!  And look how pious I am!


But here’s the thing.  The Snuggie drapes across its wearer like a blanket (analogous to the way the Indigo Girls wear their fears), but it has sleeves like a robe.  So, the Snuggie creates a false sense of security, as its wearer feels protected by a fully-covering garment, only there’s an open back.

Which brings me back to my Snuggie experience where I like to use it most:  my Mantuary.  The Mantuary features an Italian leather sofa, where I like to plop down in nothing but my Snuggie to watch the Tide.


And what of my tender Muskrat ass?  It freezes, that’s what.  My cold, chapped, and chafed ass.

I’m hoping to get some Snuggie pants for MLK Day.


You know what else makes a Muskrat feel all warm inside?  Diesel from Mattress Police.  Which is why Muskrat believes in tossing him some votes in the Best Humor Blog in the 2008 Weblog Awards.  Everyone likes an underdog, right?

  1. LOL i had suspected the snuggie was open in the back but I didn’t have any proof. So it’s a blanket with sleeves, or a backwards robe? 😉 I just wear my robe everywhere, then I can look pious without having my ass cheeks to the wind.

    Honestly it would be quite funny to see everyone at a football game in their snuggie, with nothing else…

  2. This doesn’t bode well for me when my son’s finally arrives in the mail. I have a hard enough time getting him to wear clothes.

  8. dude, you posted a pic of your arse in this photo. I tell you, you’re stooping low to pick up the votes, y’hear?

    And I think a monks robe would be way better anyhows, then you could walk around being pious. So maybe this is like a stripper monk outfit. Note to mind: do not go there.

  9. PS you put your naked butt on the sofa. Good thing you can wipe leather.

  10. OMG! i think i need another confessional

  11. I knew it! The Snuggie is nothing more than some genius buying up all of the “VIP” hospital gowns at Cedars Sinai hospital and re-selling them.

    A rope monks belt would take care of that draft for you.

    Maybe you could use the free book light to clip the back closed. Or, to shine a light on your wind-burned butt cheeks. Send in these testimonial pictures and maybe you can be in their new commercial!

    You commented on my blog about Alabama or something. It’s funny, because I don’t really remember that.

  19. Oh dear lawd. I just choked on my coffee.

    I was all set to make some lame monk joke but it flew out the window upon gazing on your butt cheeks.

    I gotta tell you tho, that appears to be a highly pinchable ass. Your wife is a lucky woman.


    (And thanks for the morning giggle dude. You rock.)

  23. Muse, I don’t thinking go to the game in this thing is a good idea. Aluminum bleachers on tender bare skin? No thanks.

    AlwaysHome, I would not advise taking pics like this of your son. There are ramifications.

    Brenda, Your man should get one. And, you need to wear sunglasses at night, like Corey told you to do.

    Avitable, You’re brilliant! Then I can drive to your house in Florida without stopping, too!

    Lobo, You forgot “…have seen the coming of the glory of the Lord…”

    SweetJuniper’s Dad, Glad somebody got it. Contrary to rumor, I am not the Prince of Darkness any longer.

    SSG, I’m totally going to be a “stripper monk” for Halloween now. Maybe St. Paddy’s Day, too.

    Siren, Please confess. I care about your soul.

    NukeDad, That’s my goal. An unfit-for-TV commercial.

    PrefersFantasy, So, what are you getting at?

    AvatG, There’s no shame here. Only beauty.

    SciFi, You mean “the glory…the glory!” right?

    MissBritt, Glad to hear it. Do they dress like that in the mid-West? I’m sure they do in Florida.

    ChurchPunkMom, Thanks. I agree w/ Avitable, too.

    SinisterDan, Homer Simpson or the poet?

    Kirsten, The image will keep you warm and happy all day. That’s not “haunting.”

    RedneckMom, She is lucky. She loved taking the pics, too.

    PrettyBride, Certainly.

    Schmutzie, Thanks! I’m a 5-Star virgin. Not any more!

    Chris, It wasn’t supposed to be funny. What are you saying, dick?

    Shieldmaiden, This is a “trouble free” zone. No fuzz or judgment here.

  24. No judgement, but since Himself is here frequently also I didn’t want him to get the impression that any expression of praise or appreciation I might offer took anything away from his own also-exquisite bottom.

    There. I said it. Sort of.

    Shieldmaiden1196’s last blog post..Exhibiting my meme-ory

  25. OMG – You got a Snuggie(r)? Soooooooo lucky. But good info about the blanketless ass. Perhaps your keen review will help the cause for Snuggie v. 2!

    Is it bad to admit that I want one? 🙂

  31. Wow. So wear that in the confessional and I’ll confess to the time I slept with my ex-husband’s new wife. 🙂

  32. That looks like the ass of a man that likes to be spanked.

    Am I right or am I right??

  35. I can see your hemorrhoids.

  36. ShieldMaiden, As much as I like “Himself,” he rarely drops a comment on my beloved blog, so I say, “let him eat ass.”

    Kiki, I think it’s great that you want one. I should totally get referral dollars for this post.

    ettarose, There is a place to go after that shot, but I’m not sure we should go there.

    Jim, Now THAT’s a mass I’d like to attend. Provided coeds are finally permitted into papacy.

    Martie, It is soft and durable on the hands. Wait. What are you talking about.

    MonstarMash, Does your employer know you celebrate “half naked Thursdays”?

    Margaret, I’m not sure about your neighbors, but since I’m the only straight man withing a 2-house radius, my neighbors would love it. Which is exactly why they don’t know about my blog.

    Countessa, How do you know I wasn’t wearing it the last time I was in there?

    Catherinette, I’m now going to reach into my snuggie pocket and pull out a little piece of paper called the FIFTH AMENDMENT.

    K2, I’m here to inform. Entertaining is for mimes.

    Matt, Your Utes can eat a dick. Although they should probably be #1.

    Bee, Low blow! Brreeeep! *tosses flag at Bee*

  37. Have them checked out dude, they look purple.

  38. Hey, I’m dropping a comment here. You eat ass, pal. 😉

    But seriously, if I were a gay, I’d be all over that.

    Would you consider that a cowl neck or a turtle neck? I never wear pants myself. But only because of my tail.

  40. In regard to pic #3, it’s not the ass shot that frightens me but the way in which you’re looming over your laptop, akin to some lecherous groomer on FaceParty. Goddamnit, it’ll be etched into my psyche now, just like my first ever RickRoll. Why internet? Why??

    Still, awesome post. 🙂

  43. The snuggie seems perfectly appropriate for you. Father Muskrat gets a monk style wardrobe. Try wearing it backwards to keep your butt warm. BTW, I just posted the interview.

  44. unfinishedrambler, Can you expand upon the meaning of “all over that”?

    DaisyCat, I think you were supposed to see it. You’re a better person now.

    PwnGreenland, How observant you are! That’s exactly what I was doing, too.

    Chowner, It’s that and so much more.

    FreeMan, Are you sure it wasn’t the best part of waking up? Better than Folgers, right?

    Savia, I’m glad you “get it.” So many of these people just do not.

    WeaselMomma, That’s a great idea! Perhaps I’ll post that pic tomorrow.

    Diesel, Best of luck. And yes, there’s no telling what product will be pedaled our way next year.

  45. My wife ran over to my desk the other day laughing her ass off (no pun intended) when she saw that commercial the other day. The problems that we invent, eh?

    Thanks for the shout-out! There should be a word for the guy who is below the underdog.

    Funny stuff!

  48. I cant help but think “Cult Robe” when I see these things.
