It's not a problem really. Sorry for nagging, boss.

No worries. The other one's coming from a bunch of crazy wops down in London so I'm not sure about that one, or what sort of state it'll be in when it arrives. Probably a suitcase full of bloodstained banknotes. Living Literature insert looked good btw.

I have never worn Crocs, but I do know someone who wears them a lot.
From this I have learned, by proxy, that they are lightweight, comfortable, enable good airflow past the feet in summer and they float and are unharmed by water. For these reasons I intended to buy some for a boating trip I want on in the summer. However I was surprised and displeased to find they were retailing for thirty quid. This is for a 20g lump of expanded plastic which I’m sure costs 0.000001p to produce.

I’m pretty sure that a significant proportion of China’s economic expansion can be directly linked to the sale of Crocs, and actually when you think about it that has turned out to be handy for the rest of the world in terms of economy propping loans.

So. That is what I think about Crocs.

I'm sorry about that giant Chingo Kebab, earlier, but in my mind was the thought 'god that chin is so pointy you could.......stick a variety of meats on it and call it a shish. One photoshop later and it was uploaded before I knew what I was doing. Sorry Ringo. Sorry everyone.

I don't get totally riled by crocs, but I get the feeling that most Londoners know better than to wear luminous plastic clogs in public. I don't see them much.

I've never felt superior to people because of what they wear or eat or what establishments they frequent.

Up until last fall I had never used a port-o-potty, but I was at a festival all day while pregnant, so had to sadly break that trend.

I guess that isn't something avoided despite modern advances though because it wasn't like I was going in the woods instead...I was just holding it until getting home or to somewhere with nicer accommodations.

Your almost making out that judging people on their footwear is a bad thing, Roo.

Feetmeet = trotters.

I have not one, but TWO pairs of crocs. One was a present, admittedly. First of all I thought I'd just wear them in the garden, but then they were so comfy I wore them to the local shop. Then the big shops. Before I knew it I was wearing them to work. I'm sorry.

You're on dangerous ground there herbs. A slippery slope, even. You'll be wearing a dressing gown and pearls to the shops before long...

They are US$30 in the States, but like most things when for sale in the UK, they take the number and just swap out the $ for the £.

Case in point, I just bought two pair of Nike 95's for $109 a pair. $218 + $20 shipping from home = $238 or roughly £117. Or, one pair here for £110

Crocs are a product of Mexico actually.

And while I would NEVER wear them outside, they have become my house shoes and are incredibly comfortable, yet disgusting at the same time.

Evil isn't what you've done, it's feeling bad about it afterwards... Yield to temptation. It may not pass your way again.

I've been I've been too busy for internets. I'm back now. I don't own Crocs. No one should own Crocs. They should not be allowed.

McDirts is more of a Birkenstock man.
