Slumpvis Mondays

Around Christmas time my sis and I were wandering around a crafty store because she needed yarn for some scarves. (The same kind of yarn she made for her cute little owls.) As I was wandering around I came across this product:

What's wrong with this picture?

Why is soft in quotes? Is it really soft? Is it simply pretending to be soft? I touched it to be sure, and it was soft. So the reason for the quotes is still worthy of a debate. Or at least a hefty questioning brow. Then, when I turned around and darted down the aisle to look at something shiny, I saw this:

Those are some pricey blankets.

I don't know... I'd have to be pretty darn cold to spend six hundred and fifteen bucks on a little blanket like that, even if some do have penguins on them. These two things combined only reminded me of something my friend took a picture of:

Um???

What makes a sock diabetic? I didn't realize they had glucose to worry about. Who knew? I suppose there may be a way to fight against the Evil Socks who are going to take over the world! squirt glucose at them.

Our diabetic socks are called Sugar Free Sox. The answer to evil socks that leave the sock ring imprint and ideal for the guy who often puts his foot in his mouth.

For $614.99, that blanket had better keep me warm when I want to be warm and cool when I want to be cool (without me telling it what I want). It had better give me massages on demand, and fetch me drinks.

It wouldn't hurt if it got a part time job, either...

That would be the coolest blanket EVER! I totally want one now...

mmmm, diabetic socks. My feet totally need less sugar in their diet.

What I wouldn't give for a $614.99 blanket?
