Monday Shoe Attempt (NSFW Scroll-Down)

Filed under: Shoes — shhville @ 4:00 pm

I tried, people. I really, sincerely and truly tried.
I got this far:

This is a pair of galoshes, right? Green, rubber galoshes that you might throw on in the middle of the night before making the trek from your tent to the outhouse 30 yards down the trail, finding your way with the headlamp strapped to your forehead. I mean, we’ve all been there, yeah?

Or, hey, you could wear them clamming. They’re probably tall enough. The problem is, they don’t have cinchers at the top so you could lose a boot in the mud if you weren’t careful. The other problem is that they’re a Marc Jacob brand boot and they cost $150.

Yes, that’s what I said, ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS.

Ok, so here’s where everything went awry. I wanted to make some snarky comment about how you could get a pair of for-sure waterproof, army-green, heavy treaded rubber boots at any army surplus store for about $25 or less, but my google search for “green rubber boots” brought me rather quickly to this site and the next thing I knew I was lying next to the toilet, scrubbing my arms and legs with steel wool and crying for my mommy.

A few choice selections:

It’s……….I can’t really…… with this.

So, you see, I, um…..just couldn’t……..

………keep going……with the post. I’m sorry……..

“If you’d like help in returning to the Waders main page, please click my jockpouch. “

……but I have to go kill myself now.



  1. I think you may have gone too far. . . .

    Thanks. I scared a co-worker with my half yelp and half scream when viewing todays entry.

    So this is what Tommy Chong is doing since he got out a prison.

  2. I can’t decide which one squicks me out the most, the one where he is practically nekkid but for the waders, jockpouch, and crossed eyes, or the one where he’s assuming the position.

  3. OMG did you claw your eyes out? Now I’m going to have to scrub mine until the image fades. If it fades!

    Damn you!

  4. Okay, seriously? That was not safe for work. Also? That was not safe for someone who was about to eat her lunch and is now nauseated, possibly on a permanent basis.

    And yet, maybe I’m just a squidge titillated, too.

    I’ll deny it if anyone asks.

    Do you guys think I should put an NSFW warning on the title?

    Comment by shhville — August 28, 2006 @ 5:09 pm

  6. Nah, I think it would be funny if anybody got caught looking at THAT at work! NO WARNING is my vote!

    What’s sad is I think I’ve been to that web site before… But I can’t remember why?

  7. NSFW in the title, definitely. Some of us could get canned for looking at that kind of stuff. Doesn’t mean we won’t do it for a laugh, but there should be a warning. Maybe “NSFW, you will claw your eyes out.”

  8. Ok, fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.

    Comment by shhville — August 28, 2006 @ 8:49 pm

  10. Dear god, I just spent 30 minutes looking at all of his photos. This is quite fascinating…I think it’s his wonky eye that is the most interesting…

  15. that wasn’t spam. it was a joke!
    why would i spam to a link to a picture that was eerily similar to the pictures you were posting?

  16. Excuse me, I have to go wash my eyes with Clorox.

  17. Great, now I have to wash vomit off of my keyboard and monitor.

    Thanks Sloth.

  18. Awwww, Frank! Now I feel terrible!

    I’m sorry. (Stipid Slothy….)

  19. The Internet has brought the world of shopping to the fingertips of just about everyone. Long gone are the days of

    driving from shop to shop, wasting precious time and petrol just to find that one particular item you’ve been searching

    for in the size you need. In this case, we’re referring to shoes.
