Whenever I see Snuggies...I think of two things;
1) Nappies - They're a brand of nappies here...
2) Heaven's Gate Cult...

Came the day to open presents, and others were opening lovely things - scarves, mittens, music, etc, and when it was time for me to open mine, I was so excited! Until I saw what I got - it was a cardboard tube about 4 feet tall, stuffed with lots of tubes of Binaca Breath Spray! It wasn't because of my breath. It had been a running gag backstage.
I should explain - when doing the show, I used to carry some Binaca Spray in my habit, to avoid getting dry mouth. It's the one thing that would keep my vocal chords from drying out. Just before going on, I'd give a spray, and on I'd go.
The worst thing about getting the present was everyone thought it was a riot, so I had to smile and pretend I thought it was so funny, but I was dying inside, because I was the only one to get a joke gift and I so wanted a nice one.
Awww. Nancy, you're such a good sport. Joke gifts are never fun.
