"Will Someone Get This Big Walking Carpet Out of My Way?"

Remember The Empire Strikes Back?

Remember Luke Skywalker almost freezing to death on the ice planet of Hoth?

Remember Han Solo taking Luke's lightsaber, slicing open Luke's Tauntaun and placing Luke inside the Tauntaun's belly to keep him warm until help could arrive?

Well soon, you might be able to recreate that movie moment with your own Tauntaun Sleeping Bag.

This used to be a joke, but when geeks like me suddenly creamed all over themselves at the mere JOKE of a Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, manufacturers took notice.

If all goes well, in the next year or so, I might be the coolest kid at the slumber party when I walk in and unroll my Tauntaun Sleeping Bag.

The Tauntaun Sleeping Bag:
Gross Enough to Make You Cool. Cool Enough to Keep You Warm!

Why am I not in advertising? Why?!?

I saw this in the ThinkGeek catalog a couple months ago and couldn't help but chuckle. By far the most ingenious licensed Star Wars product since the life-sized R2-D2 mini-bar.

Oh lord--Do you see the "guts" on the inside of the sleeping bag??? The only way to make it better would be if the guts were red...

AND the R2-D2 mini-bar!!

@Alanda: I'm gonna show the depths of my geekery right now and remind you that the tauntaun guts were a viscous milky white.

I showed this to The Fella and he was drooling.


Thank you for making my Christmas shopping easy this year, Stephen.
