Remember the Amy Poehler skit on Saturday Night Live where two of her children wore mop-inspired onesies? The idea started in as a joke in a book of Japanese chindogu (or useless inventions). SNL followed up with the Poehler skit, and then, well, then the jump happened. The Baby Mop became a real thing. Created by Better Than Pants, the mop-covered romper is fashioned to get the most out of baby's crawl across the floor. Selling for $40, the "invention" received yet another nod on a recent episode of SNL's Weekend Update. Try to follow the confusing back story from comedy to reality and back again at The Huffington Post.

What do you think of this idea? We had to chuckle when Seth Meyers, speaking of the real deal pictured above, said, "It's great if you've ever wondered, 'how can I get all this dirt and bacteria off the floor and onto my baby?'".
