Yep, rat slippers. These are, by far, the creepiest items I have seen in a long time. I found them on this post featuring 14 unusual slippers. Someone tweeted this the other day and I am so glad I was curious enough to check it out. This link is worth a click as there are many other amusing styles.
None are as outrageous as these suckers. Seriously, can you imagine slipping your feet into them? They look so real I fear that they are actually hollowed out rats. Could that be? They would have to have been made by a taxidermist. And what do you think the inserts are made of?
I am not sure why I find these so amusing. Perhaps because one of Gary’s favorite expressions is, “I don’t give a rat’s ass!” For some reason I always laugh when he says that. It makes no sense at all. If you DO give a rat’s ass does that mean you care deeply about something?
If I buy these for him he can nestle his feet into a rats ass. Kind of.
Oh, and yes, I realize that this post is a far cry from my poignant outpouring about sending my daughter off to college. (SHE will really love these!)
Chalk this all up to the stunning breadth of topics I cover here.
