Regarding “The Hoodie-Footie”

8 Feb

I have no idea how prevalent these things are – for all I know they’ve already reached a Slanket-level of popularity – but I feel like someone needs to make a stand before it’s too late.

Hoodie-Footie

No.

Not only do you like like a sexualized three-year-old wearing this thing, it’s also just one more step towards being dropped into an expandable terrycloth sack at your birth, which you’ll wear for life, and eventually be buried in.

    You know, I could totally see myself wearing something similar at the cottage, in winter, under my snow suit, but that’s it. I think I’d feel like a 79 year old shut-in that doesn’t bother changing her clothes if I wore that around the house.

      Yeah, but at that point you might as well get a pair of red long johns, at least they’d get some extra use while you were doing your old-timey prospector imitation.

    I hate to admit this but, the whole idea of “being dropped into an expandable terrycloth sack at your birth, which you’ll wear for life, and eventually be buried in” is strangely appealing.

      I couldn’t fit it into the article, but I liked the mental image of the doctor waiting, sack in hand, to catch the baby as it ejects.

    The only time I could see anyone wearing that is to a fancy dress party, and then only if they were going as a baby complete with bottle, dummy etc. And even then, you’d still only wear it to a fancy dress party if for some reason you didn’t want to or had no intention of pulling. Ever Again.

      Hah! I see the sides of the majority of these things quickly turning yellow from Cheeto-dust wipe-offs.
