Finally, the perfect pants for those long evenings at the Golden Corrall

It's the end of the world as we know it.

I mean, seriously. If this isn't one of the signs of the Apocalypse, it's at LEAST another strong indication that we here in the good old US of A are really losing it. This is actually a commercial for--- Sweatpants that are disguised as tight jeans. I guess it's marketed toward that growing (no pun intended) population of Americans who don't want to exercise or eat right, but are sick of trying to squeeze their rolls of flab into flattering jeans or wearing a Mu Mu to family night at Cicis.

With "Pajama Jeans," you get to look like you can slide your Not at all Svelte body into "designer" jeans which show off the Curves you wish you had. Because come on- if you've got the kind of body that looks good in tight jeans, you aren't going to be dissuaded by those horrible sharp buttons or the two hours it takes to get them buttoned (I had no idea that wearing jeans was so darned uncomfortable, if not downright dangerous! Where's the Attorney General on this?)

Oh wait- maybe it's got nothing to do with your Body By Cake, but instead by the "fact" that "you can spend up to EIGHTY DOLLARS for jeans..." Well, I suppose this is true. If you want preposterously overpriced designer jeans, you may spend $80 or more per pair. But if you just want a pair of nice looking jeans like EVERYONE ELSE WEARS, you are going to spend maybe thirty or forty bucks. And you know what you'll get? DENIM. That means material which is NOT made out of the same flimsy crap your PAJAMAS are made out of because you JUST USE THEM FOR SLEEPING IN.

I mean, let's think about this, ok? How long would you expect your PJs to last if you wore them while biking, jogging, or doing all those things which, come to think of it, you probably aren't doing anyway if you are desperate enough to stoop to Pajama Jeans.

I guess I have to re-evaluate this snark. Pajama Jeans are probably absolutely perfect for the lifestyle of people who would buy crap like this. They are probably just awesome for sliding into booths with your tray of meat loaf and mac 'n cheese. They probably feel just great as you take in All You Can Eat Pancakes with Cheesecake Filling at IHOP. And FINALLY- a pair of pants that don't make you feel constricted as you waddle up to the Pizza Buffet and prepare to "line jump" the woman building a salad in front of you to get the last three pounds of cinnamon buns.

Earth to fat, delusional losers: If you want to wear "skinny jeans," change your diet and lifestyle so you can look good in them. Buying Pajama Jeans is like wearing vertical stripes or installing circus mirrors in your house so you can trick yourself into thinking that you look better than you actually do. And that's just sad.

Because you know what? Your heart and cholesterol count aren't going to buy it.

  1. It's too bad that they aren't brazen enough to tell the truth; if they were, they could call them the official garment of giving up on yourself.
