Last night, I discovered my new favorite blog, Sleep Talkin’ Man. Karen Slavick created the blog in 2009 to document her husband Adam’s hilarious comments in his sleep for friends and family. In the past year, the blog’s readership has exploded, with Sleep Talkin’ Man’s popularity leading to sales of t-shirts, ringtones, coffee mugs, and other products sporting STM’s witticisms. A number of topics recur regularly, including various animals, ninjas, pirates, hatred of lentils, and much self-adulation. Due to STM’s frequent profanity, children and those who are bothered by obscenities should avoid reading the blog.
In the spirit of the New Year, here are a few of STM’s warm-and-fuzzy bon mots:
“You tap-dancing hamsters. You rock my world, with your little blurry feet.”
“Come on! Jump into my chocolate-filled love pool.”
“Skipping to work makes everything better.”
“CAKE-A-DOODLE-DOOoo! It’s cake for breakfast!”
And, finally, for anyone who has ever felt different from everyone else:
“I’m all blue with gravy spots. And I’m proud of it.”
