Well, they had fun with it anyway. Something that causes that many smiles can't be all bad.

I spent two winters working in Minnesota (aka: Great White North, Southern Division) and I can appreciate anything knitted that will keep you warm in those conditions.

It's amazing what people will get up to when winter sets in.

There is a clear precedent for this idea in an episode of the BBC Radio comedy series "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again" first broadcast in May 1966. It is currently available at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00scw5v and will be through most of January 2015.
