I was signing onto my email and saw a news story on yahoo news: "Jean Shoes Ugliest Ever?"  I couldn't pass up clicking over there to see if they are, in fact, the ugliest ever, and you know what?  I kind of love them.  First off, they're called jean-flops, which is spectacular.  Also, you can put stuff in the little pockets, like peanut butter cups or Chinese throwing stars, so they're way more functional than your standard flip-flop.  They're great accessories that would go well with just about any type of clothing, such as Zubaz or those sweatpants that look like jeans.  I would say they would complete the Canadian Tuxedo (denim pants and denim shirt) but that would just be overkill and too downright obnoxious, even for me.

Watch out!  Flopping to a store near you. 

What do you think, folks?  Are the jean-flops ugly or totally rugged and rad?

Anyone who looks at this image and doesn't think it's right as rain is no friend of mine. I'm a big supporter of leg warmers too.

Elliot: I knew a blogger a long, long time ago who said that any man who said loving Sweet Freedom was no of his, and now I see your point.

I wonder if some douche bags walk around with their hands in the pockets?

Canadian tuxedo.....hmm, funny living all these years in Canada that's something I have never heard of before.

ps: we don't wear denim, we tend to lean towards the lumberjack plaid look. :)

Elliot: Let's try responding to your comment one more time, now that I have less than 30 beers in my system. What I meant to say is there was this great blogger around 7 years ago that said "If you don't like 'Sweet Freedom' by Michael McDonald, you are no friend of mine." He is right about that. Also, that's a big yee haw for leg warmers too. Some NFL looked like they were wearing leg warmers, maybe the Panthers or some other irrelevant team.

Zibs: I would say a midget with some longer arms could for sure make that happen.

Cocaine: Maybe plaid on top and bottom would be more the Canadian Tux?

Bama: I'm kind of thinking about ordering those sons a' bitches on Amazon. Maybe mail you a pair too.
