Snuggie-ological

adj. In my day, we called it "straitjacket-ish".

Real citation: "Snuggie-ological Implications
So far, 4 million 'blankets with sleeves' have been sold. Perhaps this is a sign that the comfortable backward-robe has been brilliantly marketed to perfection -- to college students, hipsters and others who love its kitsch factor."
(Feb. 2, 2009, Laura Gilbert, Lemondrop, http://www.lemondrop.com/2009/02/02/snuggie-love-reaches-saturation-point/)

Made-up citation: "I know little of the Snuggie-ological arts. When I was a swaddling infant, blankets didn't have sleeves or tentacles or CIA chips implanted in the tag, and we made do anyway."

the two best infomercial products ever have to the Snuggie and the Shamwow... i wonder if it's possible to combine the two, and make a single, super-absorbent robe?
