Hosted by Kris Bather and Mladen Luketin from Western Australia, ES is a weekly podcast filled with news, reviews and pop culture shenanigans. Kris (loyal superhero fan) and Mladen (manga, anime and indie defender) chat about their varying, and occasional overlapping, interests in the wonderful world of sequential art.

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag

tauntaun-sleepingbagThe website ThinkGeek.com put this product up, along with a few others, as an April Fool’s Day joke. However, due to overwhelming demand it may just become a reality. It really is hilarious and would be perfect for the young Luke in any family. Head on over to ThinkGeek to see what’s what, and also to check out the other hilarious imaginary products, dating back to 2001, including squeezable bacon, USB pet rock, glow in the dark beer, a printer/shredder and laser cannons for piranhas. Here’s the skinny for the tauntaun sleeping bag…

Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and glowing lightsaber zipper pull. Now when your kids tell you their favorite Star Wars movie is “Attack of the Clones” you can nestle the wee-ones snug in simulated Tauntaun fur while regaling them with the amazing tale of “Empire Strikes Back”.

Use the glowing lightsaber zipper pull on the Tauntaun sleeping bag to illustrate how Han Solo saved Luke Skywalker from certain death in the freezing climate of Hoth by slitting open the belly of a dead Tauntaun and placing Luke inside the stinking (but warm) carcass. If your kids don’t change their tune on which Star Wars film is the greatest ever, you can do your best Jar Jar impression until they repent.
