Zombie

Finally a good point about flip flops that isn't from me. Janeane Garofalo was a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon a few days ago. And she brought up a point about flip flops and mandals "guy sandals" that is way bigger then just saying "wearing them is lazy". When the world turns black and the zombie apocalypse happens - how are you going to get away wearing flip flops? Have you see the movies "Top Ten Zombie Movies". And most recently 28 days later and I am legend. They have brought in a new kind of zombie. A fast moving almost army trained walking dead. I brought up this point to the girl friend who is a big supporter of flip flops and she said that she could out run them. Then I reminded her that bad things happen with zombies and broken glass would be everywhere and what if she lost a flip flop? Her reply was have you seen my feet? I can walk on glass. I'll have to loan her the book Zombie Survival Guide . I am very proud of Janeane Garofalo for her open mind and great vision of the future. What footwear will you be wearing when the zombie apocalypse happens? Flip Flops, I hope not.

Perhaps of interest: "Sound of Slack" by April 25. Song concerning the questionable nature of flip-flops.

I decided to Google that phrase, "I Hate Flip Flops," and look what comes up. I love that you're doing this, but you are not militant enough. Get fired up! Carry the flag, if you're gonna have the domain! Men should NEVER wear flip-flops, except at the beach or the gym. Women should RARELY wear them. Nothing serious was ever done in them. I loathe them... the look, the slappy sound. Ugh.
