The coolest sleeping bag ever.

What in the world is going on here? People are wearing their blankets. There's the Snuggie, the Slanket, and the "revolutionary sleep wear system", the Lippi Selk Bag - with all the recent commotion surrounding these newfangled sleeping bags (can I even call them sleeping bags?), I wonder what exactly has inspired this craze? At first, I naively thought, "Finally! People have come to their senses and have realized that slumber parties and camp-outs really ARE the coolest way to spend a Saturday night! Yessss!"

Sadly, I am mistaken. People, I fear, are just becoming lazier. Wearing your bedding is the next logical step in becoming the ultimate sloth. With a "sleepwear system", you can pass out anywhere, yet still ensure yourself a warm, comfortable slumber. Soon there will be personal la-Z-boy hovercrafts like in Wal-E. It is happening. Proof? A Snuggie Pub Crawl is all the evidence I need. Case closed.

Not that I am above any of this. A small (yet fleeting!) tinge of lust overcame me when I saw the Selk Bag for the first time. Like so many other intriguing but useless items, I rejected the sleeping bag and succumbed to my practical and frugal ways. I denounce you, Selk Bag!

...

Of course, everyone has a certain threshold of resistance. I can only denounce so much. The trend has become too strong and honestly, there is no way I could ever deny a grizzly bear suit/sleeping bag. Some things are just worth coveting.
