Hug Me Pillows, both male and female

The Hug Me Pillow

The Hug Me Pillow

I think that the whole “replace your boyfriend with a pillow” concept is dumb, naturally, but the product itself is a smart one.  It’s true that the body is more comfortable when supported from both sides.  I remember, as a little kid, i would build “fortresses” with spare pillows and snuggle between them.  But why don’t they make right-armed pillows?  What if you can only sleep on the right side of the bed?  Believe me, i’ve tried to sleep on the left side, and i had to switch over to the right to fall asleep.

Also, i searched for Girlfriend pillows, and gee, look what came up:

The Girlfriend Pillow #1

The Girlfriend Pillow #1

What do you know, it comes with “realistic-to-the-touch legs and a tight short polyester skirt in your choice of black or red.”  Unbelievable.

Here’s another one:

Girlfriend Pillow #2 (the upper half)

Taken from the site above:

“Add this Girlfriend Pillow to that Lap Pillow we showed you a few years ago, and you could end up with a whole girl, minus all that bothersome yapping. This one takes the concept a step further, quivering with delight thanks to its internal vibrator that runs on two D batteries.

Looks like they put the double Ds in the wrong place. Too bad the designers chose to make this $14.99 pillow so flat-chested. What about that old saying, “Anything over a mouthful is wasted”? We disagree. In fact, we’re hoping the next version will contain a couple of double-D-sized flasks, strategically located.”

How revolting!  I don’t even know what to say!

But to be fair, “They will soon be bringing out a new range dressed in football team colours,” and that’s offensive, too.
