Gotta hand it to those Swedes...

Anybody know Swedish? Wanna tell me what the hell a "Genevad" is supposed to be? Because I got one in the mail today, and so far its purpose has stumped four out of five Asbachs...

(But seriously, thank you, Grey & Allison, for the conversation piece.)

footwarmer.

I don't know, I'm just guessing; but the Swede in me says that.

After consulting the Ikea website (from whence it came, methinks), yes, it does appear to be some kind of bizarre foot-warming device. Me, I've always been partial to socks, but I guess some folks want more cushioning than that... ;+)

Sweden is cold as reverse hell in the summer. I can only imagine it is *colder* than reverse hell right now. Kinda like Minnesota! :)

I didn't realize they'd sell these things at IKEA. Socks are good, but hey, don't you want your ability to walk to be impaired??

You know, you're right, this thing just can't be OSHA-approved... ;+)

anyone who puts that thing on and *then* attempts to move around a room deserves whatever is coming to him/her!

Hail to the Mothership! Hail to Ikea! Blessed be the fuzzy foot-slipper-pillows!!! :+) (My brother's been trying to shove Toivo the cat's feet in there all day...turns out, the cat really likes to knead that thing. Cute, but slightly disturbing at the same time for some reason.
