Poundland Is Selling Snoring Swatters For The Noisy Sleeper In Your Life

Poundland Is Selling Snoring Swatters For The Noisy Sleeper In Your Life

If you've ever had the pleasure of sharing a bed with someone who snores, my heart goes out to you - but this may be the thing you've been looking for.

While we're not condoning the use of violence, the 'Snoring Swatter' could give you a helping hand with the foghorn in your life.

The nifty little device, which promises to 'give that snore what for', was spotted by a shopper who posted a photo of it in the Facebook group 'B&M Bargains & More'.

The snap of the extendable arm was shared with the caption: "Found this in Poundland, I think every woman needs one of these."

And for many people in the group, it was the answer to their prayers.

Commenting on the post, one person said: "I'm off shopping."

A second user wrote: "I need one of these."

"Need!!!!! Currently sleeping on the sofa due to my walrus husband," cried a third.

While another long-suffering spouse added: "I needed this about five this morning, I would of quite happily of jabbed him [sic]."

Admittedly, snorers come in for their fair share of criticism - but maybe it's actually not their fault. Well, not always anyway.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that there is a correlation between someone who snores and the size of their tongue. Large-tongued snorers.

According to The Sun, the link was found in patients with mild to severe obstructive sleep apnoea - which leads to snoring - and a body mass index (BMI) over 30.

Those that lost weight found their sleeping improved by nearly a third. Sounds good but what does that have to do with your tongue? Well, that could lose weight as well.

In fact, MRI scans revealed that a reduction in tongue fat volume was the real game changer.

Professor Richard Schwab, one of the researchers, told The Sun: "Most experts have not typically focused on fat in the tongue. We now know it is a major factor."

There were 67 patients that were analysed by US researchers as they lost ten percent of their body weight over six months.

They discovered that as they lost the weight, their jaw muscle shrank as did muscles on both sides of the airway. These both relieved symptoms of snoring but not as much as a skinnier tongue did.
