Peekaru? Peekaridiculous

So a couple of weeks ago near the end of the work day, a friend IM'd me. He said he'd found something that he thought I'd find hilarious and he sent me a link. Now automatically I'm skeptical. Once you've told me I will think something is hilarious, I assuredly won't. Too much build up. I was feeling the pressure as I prepared to put on a typewritten show to affirm the hilariousness I was sure NOT to experience.

I click on the link.

BLAM!!! I'm confronted with that which does make me double over in laughter immediately. This:


What on God's green earth is this?! Is it real? It CANNOT be real! I do some research. It is real.

Does anyone else believe this to be a completely ludicrous device?! My first thought when I see it is death trap.

Any other thoughts? Do any of the two of you who read this blog own this product or know someone who does? In the timeless words of my old college literature professor, "Questions? Comments? Testimonials?"

Oh my freaking gosh! That's hilarious. I hate to say it, but I can see the practicality of it when it's cold out.

i actually procured one of these lifesavers when i was pregnant with my third child, having lost my first two to the bitter cold of texas' autumn... unfortunately, my third child's torso and limbs survived, but his head froze straight off.

so naturally, when baby #4 came along, i sprang for the peekaru hat as well... and it was well worth it

oh, this image definitely floated around our office—one of the boss's wife had twins in may and it was too good to pass up.
