Please say it's so!

What?! The company that makes Crocs is about to go belly up?!


I have never understood the appeal of these shoes. They certainly aren't aesthetically pleasing on anyone over the age of 9, except maybe on gardeners. I hear they're comfortable. You know what else is comfortable? Sneakers. Flip-flops. Vans. Chucks. Any other number of shoes. And they all look better than Crocs. Even Birkenstocks.

According to the Washington Post:
The company [Crocs] had expanded to meet demand, but financially pressed customers cut back. Last year the company lost $185.1 million, slashed roughly 2,000 jobs and scrambled to find money to pay down millions in debt. Now it's stuck with a surplus of shoes, and its auditors have wondered if it can stay afloat. It has until the end of September to pay off its debt.
Now can we do something about these, please?

UGH indeed.

And in case you're wondering, yes I did just write a blog discussing judging people by their clothes. I said I try not to do it. These are two exceptions ... to the "trying" part.

Now if only we could do something about those stupid plastic "sunglasses" that Kanye West wears. Didn't Max Headroom wear those in 1985?
