I also dont make the typical pretzel shape. every time i do, each one looks worst than the next. So I convinced my kids that we are making " snake pretzels" and they think its the coolest think and saves me the embarrassment of making ugly looking pretzel wannabe's :)

LOL Oh yeah ... my pretzel shapes are a bit frightening at times too. I had the grands over one time and we made soft pretzels. The youngest who was 4 at the time looked at me, scrunched up her nose, squinted her eyes and said "Grandma who do you think you are fooling with THAT?" Then she showed me how to make a pretzel LOL Anyway, it matters not what the shape is .. so long as they taste good !

I make them almost like bagels. That is to let the dough rise for 1 hour then punch down and cut them into ropes, roll out each rope to about 20" and shape into a pretzels. Lay them out on a sheet pan and let the rise for another 20 minutes; (covered) with a linen towel. Boil a quart or two of water with 1/2 cup of baking soda. Place in boiling water for 30 seconds on each side and back on the baking pan. Bake @ 350 until desired color is reached, about 25 minutes or so. Add corse sea salt and eat warm.

No Larry, you will be dreaming of "snake" pretzels. Now don't blame me if you have nightmares!

another good way is not to make the pretzel shape, but cut them in bite size pieces. Save's the embarrassment.
