Don't Act Surprised

In a preview for the local news, there were various shots of women in flip-flops walking around the city.  The voice over said, "Why flip-flops could be bad for your feet.  Next at 10."  My response was, "Well, they're basically a piece of cardboard and rubber bands, that's why they're bad for your feet.  I'm going to bed early."  I mean, really.  Is this news?  Is anyone surprised by the idea that shoes that I could make at home are bad for your feet?  If you are, you're an idiot.

Of course, people still smoke so maybe I shouldn't assume.


  1. Your post has reminded me of two Simpsons episodes: 1. when Burns turns into a Howard Hughes like recluse that wears Kleenex boxes on his feet and 2. when Moe was wearing bread bags for shoes. ("What? You don't like my bags?")

  2. No, you shouldn't assume....I'm sure you know why.....
