I'd never considered buying a Snuggie before. A blanket with sleeves? Are you kidding? If you have to go into a CVS to buy something other than vitamins, drugs, cosmetics, pop or candy, you're probably making a poor decision.
I did consider buying one as a gag gift for my sister's husband a couple of years ago. I wanted to see if he would completely miss the irony and think it was a cool gift. But I couldn't bring myself to do it and ended up getting him something else instead. Probably a Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler movie on DVD.
But I might have to reassess my position on Snuggies. Clearly, this company is not content to maintain the status quo with its blue and red models. No, they're exploring the space that a blanket with sleeves allows. And in that space, there is definitely room for a Batman snuggie.
Actually, I don't think this is an official Snuggie. It's listed as a "comfy throw blanket with sleeves" on Amazon. But that's cool. If Snuggie fell asleep at the wheel, it's reassuring to know someone had the vision to seize an opportunity. Also offered are Spider-Man and Wonder Woman models. (I'm suspicious of the Spidey model, however, since it looks Photoshopped over the Batman guy.)
Would I use a Batman snuggie? Hell, yes. Especially if I got to use it in a Pier 1 setting like the guy in the picture does. But I get cold watching TV at night. I have blankets. But none with Batman on them.
No, I would probably never enjoy the company of a woman again with a Batman snuggie. That's something to consider. But would I want to be with a woman who didn't see how cool — or hilarious — a Batman snuggie is? Well... if she was a woman hanging out at my place, then yes.
But I would at least extend the courtesy of offering her a Wonder Woman model to use.
