SkyMall Strikes Again

April 22, 2008 at 11:24 am 7 comments

The minds at SkyMall have been hard at work to bring air travelers cutting-edge products to make life easier.

Just turn the heat up

Exhibit A: The Slanket

Perhaps I don’t live in a cold enough climate to appreciate the need for a Slanket, the blanket that allows freedom to use your hands while not sacrificing your arms to the open air. For both indoor and outdoor use, you can even wear this to a baseball game to attract some strange stares. Or you could purchase these poncho covers for your whole family and keep the thermostat 10 degrees lower than usual. It’s so cool to be GREEN these days.

Exhibit B: DayClock

The ultimate insulting gift that tells the receiver they don’t have enough going on in their week to have to worry about the hour of the day, just the day!

Exhibit C: Nouveau Fireplace

What would you honestly say to someone if they had an “heirloom-quality” electric fireplace blazing beneath their DVD player? “Must shop at SkyMall!”

    You gave me my laugh of the day. However, a girl I know who lives in Canada might really like that first item ASAP.

    Very funny… I have to say though, I have one of those electric fireplaces and it is AWESOME. Half the people who come over for the first time think it’s completly real, the rest just want one for themselves!

    SkyMall never fails to please! More often than not lately I find myself wondering what day it is in a moment of pregnancy-induced-dementia. But that doesn’t mean I have no use for the time! Maybe they figure that people who would buy that product are so far gone, why bother overloading their brains with the day AND time.

    Yes, I’d like to order one slanket, please. Does it come in pink?

    One can argue the ergonimic and/or warm and fuzzy merits of the slanket and electo fireplace, but the day clock has merit for a corporate conference room…since every meeting a company has usually takes (or at least feels) like an entire day. You’re either actually in the room the entire day (getting nothing done) or in there long enough to wind up getting nothing done that day regardless.
