Adult Footie FestSunday, December 11, 2011
I’ve blogged often on the rapid disintegration of American adult maturity. The culture of enduring adolescence is turning society into a bozo collective. I’ve enjoyed making fun of those baby pajamas for adults with such names as hoodie-footies. Indeed, I can’t think of anything more sexy than a man in cutesy footie pajamas decorated with santa claus and penguins. Hot, hot! These are supposed to be “fun,” so I guess I am a curmudgeonly bore who just doesn’t get the real meaning of fun.
A reader pointed out to me that there is special footie wear designed for indoor/outdoor use – you know, when the guys are hanging ’round and yukking it up. ForeverLazy makes lounge wear for all of your “lie around, lounge around” moments. Ya gotta love the home page photo of the tailgaters in pajamas. These head-to-toe jammies for Daddy and Mommy even have “zippered hatches in front and back, for great escapes when duty calls.” Colors for men are “workday blues” and “asleep on the job gray.”
Perhaps the public schools should adopt this as a regulatory dress code to give the kiddies a “Head Start?” It could be a federally-subsidized entitlement program called “The Feds Got Your Footies.” Because everyone has a right to stay warm.
