This, too, shall pass

The “Better Marriage Blanket” contains a layer of activated charcoal for odor absorption, essential if, for instance, you wind up married to Jessica Simpson. At $120 to $180, though, it’s pricey, and WalletPop recommends some alternative measures at varying price points:

You can’t put a price on love, but sanity is another story. And while cheaper alternatives exist (a can of Lysol, nose plugs, cork), so do more expensive ones: marriage counseling, bigger beds, and the Lasko 3135 30″ Oscillating Industrial Pedestal Fan. We don’t know if the Better Marriage Blanket will work, honestly. But just like marriage itself, it’s a bit of a crap shoot. Let’s not take that metaphor any farther.

One thing that will definitely not work: getting a dog, and then blaming it.

    What do you do when the “charcoal layer” becomes saturated with dessicated poot?

    Well, you probably can’t burn it, at least not without a permit and an exemption from the EPA and a note from Al Gore.
