Bibs to Go coming to a parking lot near you

Bibs aren’t just for infants with poor motor skills anymore. We adults can wear bibs too, and I don’t mean just when we’re dining at Red Lobster. Now we can wear bibs while downing Whoppers and Big Macs.

There is a bib for today’s adult, a bib to protect us while we eat alone in the parking lot outside our favorite fast food restaurant and while we stuff fries in our mouth while driving on the interstate. Don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about.

In the olden days, a guy might have just pilfered a handful of toilet seat covers from the McDonald’s restroom, tossed one around his neck and stashed the rest in the glove compartment for future lunchtime escapades. But no more!

A businessman with a very large dry cleaning bill thought, there must be a better way!

BibsToGo are oversized, absorbent, waterproof, disposable and recyclable bibs that slip over the head and rip off easily. Napkins did not adequately cover [the guy who invented BibsToGo], and like most professionals, he found himself spending up to $1,000 a year on dry cleaning bills to remove stains. There are over 300,000 fast food restaurants in the US and eating and drinking while traveling is increasing. Multi-tasking can lead to making a mess of one’s self. BibsToGo.com wants to help people show up neat, as first impressions mean more now than ever before.”

For the low, low price of $5.99 and $3.99 shipping per box you can net yourself 12 burger bibs.

Before you shoot back at me saying, “But $10 is too expensive. We’re in a recession!”, hey, hey, hey… don’t let that get you down. BibsToGo also work in Taco Bell parking lots.

Thank you Wikipedia!

Ohhhh, okay, time for a reality check. Not only are we in a global recession, but everyone here is a parent. That means every last dime of ours goes toward clothing and feeding our kids and buying them organic free-trade wooden toys. We still can’t afford $10 for 12 bibs, not to mention these are adult-size bibs that don’t come in 12- and 18-month sizes, let alone 2T, 3T, 4T or 5T.

There is one glimmer of hope though. The BibsToGo inventor notes on his website that these bibs are prime real estate for company logos. It’s only a matter of time before McDonald’s, Burger King and the rest of their brethren begin offering complimentary bibs.

“Would you like ketchup? Need a drink tray? How about a bib? Thank you, come again!”

    Bibs? I just go to the 25-cent clothing sale at the local Salvation Army. It’s cheaper than some diapers!

    I just hope the children in the car (right about the middle of the video) were not impaled on the Popsicle sticks they were given while the car was going. Yipes!

    A few years ago there was a reality show that was for inventors. I forget the name of the show; but I do remember that one of the inventions someone had presented was exactly this. I wonder if it’s the same person or if someone else just knocked off the idea.

    As a person with big boobs (there’s no other way to say it) I do find a get a bit messier than others; but I just take a napkin or eat more carefully. Seriously, a total waste of money…but hilarious post!

    Man-o-man do you know about a lot of fast food joints – or were able to wiki them. I did not even know that schlotsky’s was still around – havn’t seen one of those in decades…

    Adult bibs are the perfect compliment to my adult diapers.

    Save the planet, use a towel.

    Taco Tico is still around?
