So I was spending my Monday here at 96-7 KCAL Rocks doing what I usually do, which is find great ways to waste time on the internet. After I checked my fantasy football teams and watched a bunch of FAIL videos of guys getting hit in the crotch, I stumbled across THIS LINK to the 2012 promotional calendar for the San Francisco Giants.
I happen to be a fan of the Giants, which really pisses off all of the Dodger fans around here, so I was kind of excited to see what they had to offer next year. Among the usual hats and bobble heads, one item jumped out at me. Orange Friday Texting Gloves. Texting Gloves. I said to myself, “Zakk, WTF ARE TEXTING GLOVES?!?” So I Googled it, and the picture up top there appeared. Along with about 50 other versions.
Apparently people that aren’t cool enough to live in So Cal can’t use their touch screens and prevent frostbite at the same time, so some nerd invented these gloves that still activate the touch screen technology. Meanwhile, people all over the world are literally freezing to death, but at least now I can post how sad I am about that on Facebook without getting my finger tips chilly.
I may not end up with these magical gloves anyway, because I’m probably going to hold out for the Brian Wilson Garden Gnome instead. FEAR THE BEARD!
