Even Stranger World Pajama Events

Onesie Christmas gifts for Pet Lovers

You know that we look out for world pajama events to bring you, and if they include pics of onesie pajamas then even better.

We noticed two events this week which may have passed you by. In London England we had the world’s most famous dog show, Crufts, and on March 17th some (the Irish) celebrated St Patricks Day. Can we turn either of those into pajama events, surely there must be a shamrock adult onesie design somewhere? Luckily at Crufts, they are all barking mad. Did you know that Charles Cruft, the founder of the dog show, was a dog treat salesman…..and marketing genius to get all his customers in one place. Now of course, dog breeding is big business and to look after their little treasures, owners can get dog onesies to keep them in show condition. In the image above the owner needs our Harlequin funzee so they could be a matching couple.  An even more bizarre onesie story was the report that there is now a Kevlar dog onesie so that Fido can go motor biking with you in a sidecar. The owner decided to buy a sidecar to take his canine friend on adventures, but could only find “doggles” – eyewear for dogs – to protect his pet.  For just over $200 he was able to get a Kevlar suit specially made to protect the dog in case of accidents.

When looking for pajama events here is one we weren’t expecting. In Australia a senator turned up for a debate in the House in his pajamas and slippers. A vote shortly after 1.30pm on Friday last week ended nearly 40 hours of debate, making it one of the longest Senate considerations of a single bill for over 25 years. Supporters included independent South Australian senator Nick Xenophon, who turned up in pajamas to highlight how stupid it is to try and debate for nearly 2 days. Could we see this in Washington?

After these stories we better have something more sensible to report for St Patrick’s Day, although with all the parades in Ireland, America and elsewhere I bet we could find some onesie pajama events somewhere but we haven’t found the pics yet.  How about this to make the Scots green with envy. The word whiskey is derived from the gaelic ‘Uisge Beatha’, meaning water of life. Many nations have a white spirit known as “eau de vie”. You may think that whiskey originated in Scotland (after all, its called Scotch) but historical facts point otherwise, suggesting it was originally distilled in Ireland. Irish monks are reported to have learned the secrets of perfume distillation in the Far East and built upon this knowledge to craft a drinkable spirit about a thousand years ago. If you can find any of that in your local bar it will be well aged by now.
