Lose weight? Now you don't have to! Pajama Jeans are here!

That's right!  I know we've all eaten our way through the holidays...and by holidays I mean beginning with Thanksgiving and going right through...well...infinity and beyond.  The endless fudge, pralines, egg nog, cookies..and if you live here in it's king cake season, which will lead to Easter and's all sure to make your jeans a little snug.   Well, have no fear!  Now you don't have to diet....just buy some Pajama Jeans. (and I hesitate to even include this link, hence someone mistake this for an endorsement of any kind...let's be clear...THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT!)

Is this the most riduculous thing you've ever seen?  I mean seriously, PAJAMA JEANS!  What is this world coming to?  Another step in the steep slope of American decline  "Pajamas to live in.  Jeans to sleep in"....seriously?  Have we gotten so lazy that we can't change into clothes once we wake up and want to leave the house?  No, don't answer that question.  I've been to WalMart....I see what passes for clothes these days.  And while I'm on this subject, this new phenomenon will certainly lead to quite a few good "People of WalMart" pictures....use your imagination here...imagine the endless possibilities.

I'm pretty sure Jerry Seinfeld summed this up best in his conversation with George as it related to sweatpants...the same holds true for Pajama Jeans in my humble opinion.

"Again with the sweatpants?"

"What? I'm comfortable."

"You know the message you're sending out to the world with these sweatpants? You're telling the world, 'I give up. I can't compete in normal society. I'm miserable, so I might as well be comfortable.'"

- Jerry and George, in "The Pilot"


  1. I mean, how uncomfortable are regular jeans that we need pajama bottoms to look like them? Most jeans already come with a pretty good amount of spandex in them already!

  2. Oh good grief Shannon! Just crazy! those who love to wear their pajama bottoms and slippers to the store are gonna looove these! :(

  3. Great post! Don't you love the commercial. Oh, and I want to ask those who wear pj bottoms to the store, "did you look in the mirror before you left?"

  4. There are NO words....

    btw, I Left you a little award!

  5. hmmmm, considering my post-holiday encounter with our bathroom scales, these might be a necessity for at least a month or so...these and my jaws being wired shut...
