Heard about this on Conan last night. Now, I don't own a Snuggie, but for those who do... get busy.

Note for later: Remember to order Snuggie.

I don't watch The Big Bang Theory regularly, so I could be risking missing a joke in here, but surely you must have heard of the Snuggie beyond a mention on a single sitcom...

Actually, no. I'd never seen one advertised before. It wasn't actually called a Snuggie though.

This may be a good Canadian/American test, because they're advertised all over the place down here.

Wow, that's interesting. I might consider myself lucky if I were you, though. Beyond the endless barrage of Snuggie commercials I've seen for the past several months, last spring it felt like Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon mentioned Snuggies at least every other night on their respective shows, including Fallon doing an extended bit where every single audience member was given and wore a Snuggie. I feel like I've seen them mentioned on the Daily Show and Colbert Report too, but I could be mistaken. Maybe I just watch too many talk shows?

And I agree with Lise. The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw a Snuggie was that I could do the same thing by wearing my big bathrobe backwards. Actually, that was the second thing. The first thing I thought was, "If I get this thing as a present from somebody they're off my Christmas list!"

EDIT: Good call on the Canadian/American thing. That thought crossed my mind too.

How about an "Is it him?" test.

Are these things sold on TV, specifically during late night shows? If so, I've never seen them - I'm usually in bed by 10:00pm

Are these things sold at Wal-Mart or other big-box stores? If so, I've never seen them - I do most of my shopping elsewhere.

I'll think of other quiz questions later. Thanks for playing, tell 'em what they won, Bob!

Hansen9j, since you're a fellow Canadian (and a Western Canadian, to boot) where would someone find one out this way?

(Of course I've heard of the Snuggie, but) I thought the Slanket was just how they chose to refer to the Snuggie on an episode of 30 Rock!

Selma Hayek (to Tina Fey, who wont leave the room): "Dont you have a Slanket somewhere to fill with your farts?"

Ha!

Cable tv, most likely. I tried to retrace my steps to figure it out (I was helped by Wiki (en.wikipedia.org)), which reminded me of Jon Stewart wearing one early on. Real Time with Bill Maher has also been obsessed with the idea, especially in combination with the Sham-Wow (forming a Snug-Wow). But yeah, I've seen the ad on cable enough times to have already gotten the joke before people started overtly making the joke. (I'm not sure if I've seen Canadian ads for it.)

I haven't. Not sure I've ever seen an ad for one, actually, but I still knew what a Snuggie was because I've seen people making fun of them. I didn't realize the Slanket was a real product, though - like Frosty, I assumed it was a Snuggie by another name that was being made fun of on 30 Rock (what with Liz filling it with her farts while working on her night cheese).

I forgot who threw a link to the color blindness test, but that one got me. I'd a/HREF your links next time to camoflage them. Seeing "Sabotage" in the link is a gigantic red flag.
