I'm proud to walk a tightrope, now the gravity's so high

W. H. Auden was a weird dude:

But the people in charge of promoting the Gravity weighted hug-blanket, do they promise to unleash your poetic potential? DO THEY BOGROLL. The advertising is all about relaxation and security and neurotransmitter modulation. They are doing it wrong. That is why they have only attracted $4 million in crowd-sourced investment.

Here are some helpful Lilliputians providing Gulliver with stress-relief and reduced cortisol levels:
Danger of non-personal hug-blanket
Gravity hug-blankets are personalised:
We know your anatomy is unique, which is why we’ve engineered Gravity to meet your personal needs. This isn’t a weighted blanket for everyone. It’s a weighted blanket for you.
which is why we’re offering 15, 20, and 25 pound options.

M.R. James must have broken Auden's brain.
