Necky: The neck Snuggie. Please, no.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Wearables, Videos

Please, someone explain to me why you’d need a Necky, because I am just not seeing it. What is wrong with the regular clothes that we already have, and have used for generations? Why do you need a chestplate that is fashioned out of cheap cloth to stay warm in the winter? Huh?? Answer me!! It’s a scarf, not a freaking bow tie. Learn how to wear one, Necky enthusiasts!


Pro Snow Maker Creates Winter

Pro Snow MachineWe were all set to blog about the cutesy Snow Blowing Snowman which seemed a welcome relief from all those blow-up snow globes that constantly leak, when we came across this deluxe model. Used in movies by Thomas FX, you can bring winter home with the professional machine that features a 600 watt motor and fan that will shoot out up to 30 feet. At a size of 21 x 9 x 11-inches, it runs for about one hour and can adjust from light to heavy flakes. The machine comes with 8 oz. of snow solution, with additional bottles available for $124.94. At a price of $1499.95, we can’t imagine wanting to do anything with that much snow except making it go away.
