    "Slanket" shows its owners relaxing on the couch while "Snuggie" is shown being worn by people in public. That's about it

    I'd like to punch the Shamwow guy in the head so if that means I'd have to buy a shamwow in the process so be it.

    Some great Vince Offer (Shamwow! guy) quotes:

    "You're gonna love my nuts!"
    "Made in Germany. You know the Germans always make good stuff."
    "Stop having a boring tuna. Stop having a boring life."
    "If I can do it with one finger, you can do it with one hand."
    "Tacos, fettucini, linguini, martini, bikini..."

    Slanket. Look how comfortable that guy is in the picture playing his PSP. I could see myself sitting on my lazy-boy chair in the afternoon, Jon Miller show on, and quickly falling asleep.

    Snuggie's show tools playing backgammon in them.



    Anyone see Jim Rome's takes on each of these? He is in love with the Sham-Wow.

    Re: Slanket or ShamWow?

    Also, I have the tendency to spill a lot, so I'd definitely go for a Shamwow.

    I think Chevy should hire Vince and Chrysler should hire Billy. Those guys could sell beef in India

    Re: Slanket or ShamWow?

    Someone's been lurking through our discussions of this vital topic

    Truly the way to start with a bang. This will likely be the thread of the day, unless it's overcome by the weather or a DC announcement.

    Nicely done. Welcome aboard. I already have blankets, so the ShamWow sounds cool enough to me.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
