I've been doing some rearranging of my household lately and decided that it might be time to spruce up my bedroom linens.

So I trotted off to one of those home stores and promptly made my way over to the bedding department, where I spent quite a bit of time browsing. There I happened upon those obsequious items that never fail to fascinate me for some peculiar reasons -- the Bed In A Bag.

Literally, these mammoth plastic bags allegedly contain all you might require to properly dress your bed, including such niceties as sheets, pillowcases, maybe a comforter and perhaps even a bedskirt, all zipped up nice and tight.

Some Madison Avenue braniac came up with this notion, one of those types who tout themselves as capable of getting "results" or "solutions" or else inventing innovative "concepts."

So here's the rub: what happens to the Bed In A Bag when you take it out of the bag? I don't know about you but I think that the moment you unzip that bag and remove the contents, it ceases to be a Bed In A Bag and becomes a Bed Out Of The Bag, a totally different product.

It's all false advertising from the onset, and if I were you and had bought one of these things, I'd march myself down to where I bought the item and demand my money back.

Amen, and pass the mustard.
