Croc Rock

For quite a while, I allowed the public debate about whether those shoes designed for the garden were better left there or if they were alright for everyday wear to rage on without me. I hadn't formed a definite opinion because I hadn't actually tried them on.

Now that I've slipped my foot into one, there may be no turning back.

One question remains - how do you get the lid on without breaking your leg or the shoe?

Thanks for pimping out my blog on Blog Reviewer, Dale. Got the prizes from Spyville and delivered them to the Sacramento Children's Receiving Home. Thanks!

Bubs said...

This blog has really gone to pot.

GETkristiLOVE said...

Sadly, those are more attractive than the real thing.

Chris said...

For even more comfort, Dale, add some chili or perhaps a nice beef stew. Your feet will thank you.

John Mutford said...

Ah, prop humour. You know, there's this really great comedian named Carrot Top...

Dale said...

No problem Lori, glad you did the right thing and didn't leave town with the prizes! Happy Holidays.

So you're giving me a pan Bubs?

I think you're right Get Kristi Love! I'm so happy you dropped by but not at this particular post. I'm so ashamed which actually is a good colour on me.

That's a toasty warm idea Chris. Feet stew. Mmmm.

I'm glad I forced you out of comment retirement to say that John Mutford. After I stop crying, I plan on filming myself smashing a watermelon too. Why should CT get all the glory. Poor Gallagher.

All the cannibals say- slow-cooked Dale, is sooo much better than deep-fried Dale.

It's only a matter of minutes before you are on the cover of GQ, Dale Ripert! Fashion icon and guitar hero!

BeckEye said...

I'm laughing at getkristilove's comment and waiting for CP's inevitable freak-out over this post.

Now Dale, shit or get off the pot.

Splotchy said...

If there's a knock on your door, be forewarned, it'll be me with a wiffleball bat poised to strike.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Ain't drunk blogging fun?

You're sober?

Oh.

Marloes said...

Excuse me?..Somehow I think you really put your foot in it now..:)

Old Lady said...

Nice floors

Suze said...

Well done. You just croc me up. You've been stewing about this haven't you? Wait, wait, I've got a million of them :)

Distributorcap said...

how about a little of the gene kelly old soft shoe?

SkylersDad said...

You didn't order them with the optional strapon top?

They saw you coming my friend...

Jake's Mom said...

What a croc!;)

Franki said...

Uh, no thanks. I already ate.

Frankily Yours

Hot Lemon said...

::rolls eyes::

You know, down here they're considered acceptable wear for church on sunday.

Oh, and when you live in the subtropics and you suddenly get o'erwhelmed with 4" of water running past your car, it HELPS to have shoes w/holes in 'em that you can later throw into the washing machine.

Mine are yellow, my wife's are pink n' yellow, my son's are reg and my daughter's are pink. Take that.

Beth said...

Please tell me you haven't gone croc ... or pot.

The Gifted Typist said...

Are you telling us that your Crocked Up

Grant Miller said...

If that was a little bigger, it'd be perfect for boiling a few little kids.

pistols at dawn said...

Those are incredibly stylish and fetching!

Bluez said...

you so crazy

genn6 said...

I agree with kristi, more attractive than the real thing, as in I don't care if there's 4" of water running past my car, I'll just buy new shoes....

Old Lady said...

Shame on you, they are an endangered species!!! Put that croc back where it belongs.

Allison said...

Oh, you're now one of those people. The croc phenomenon is just one I don't understand.

I mean, why cook yourself? When you can eat out and not have to do the dishes?

Leonesse said...

What a lovely shade of crock.

chelene said...

You'll never get through airport security.

Blowing Shit Up With Gas said...

Are those things one-size-fits-all? Maybe that's why they're so popular.

Dale said...

I don't think I'm ready for my close up Write Procrastinator.

If it's okay Beckeye, I think I'll just get off the pot. Where is CP? What have you done with him?

Sometimes Splotchy, violence is the only answer.

It was funnier in my head Barbara. Hic.

All that disinfecting afterward wasn't worth it either Marloes.

They look nicer in the photo than they are Old Lady. Want to help me replace them?

Suze, two was enough, thank you! Haha.

Only if Fred Astaire vacuums up after me Distributorcap!

I feel like I'm born every minute Skyler's Dad.

Imagine if I actually had two Jake's Mom?

You know you want some Franki.

The trick may be to move to higher ground Hot Lemon because I'm having a hard time reconciling the pirate image and the Crocs.

I've gone to a dark place Beth but there's a light switch.

All crocked up and no place to go GT.

Such a modest proposal Grant Miller.

They're fetching bad jokes out of me left, right and centre Pistols at Dawn.

Not so crazy Bluez, just plain crazy.

These ones take on too much water Genn6, I'll just get new ones too.

Do they need the lid back too Old Lady? Will the movie be called Blood Croc?

It's a rare day when I actually use it Allison, the thing I make best is reservations.

It's the 'in' shade Leonesse.

They're off then Chelene. How else will I get away from the neighbors?

I don't mind saying BSUWG that these are X-LARGE.

X. Dell said...

You might want to cut the lid to the shape of your foot and sock. The obvious advantage of a shoe like that, though, is that you never have to get it resoled.

Probably wouldn't get resold, either.

Dale said...

If I only had a brain like you X. Dell, I might sell it.

Melly/Melody/or Mel said...

Okay...I actually laughed.

Kate said...

lmao.... I have a pair and would wear them only b4 the general masses decided to do so(like 3 years ago)... now they are only allowed in the garden! Ick what WAS I thinking! lol

Dale said...

Okay....good Mel(ly)(ody)

You set a dangerous trend Kate, please use your powers for good.

Jill said...

I have negleted you, lately, Dale!
It is so sexy, especiallly with the pj!!

Valerie said...

you are awesome.

funniest blog post I've read in a while.

Chancelucky said...

Dale,
the problems is that you dont' have the shirts and pants to match the crock-wear shoes.

jewgirl said...

wise ass.

Dale said...

I don't mind you neglecting me Jill, it just feels right.

Oh dear, you must get out more Valerie. Or read more, haha.

What Not To Wear, The Crocs Edition should be on tv soon Chancelucky. I'll pay strict attention.

Why yes, yes I am, Ms. JewGirl.
