"Sandals with socks are certainly up there. Generally speaking, it's footwear trends. I mean, the Croc--it looks like a plastic hoof. How can you take that seriously? I know it's comfortable; I understand that. But if you want to dress to feel as though you never got out of bed, don't get out of bed."
--Tim Gunn's thoughts on the worst fashion trends, in Time Magazine.
Sometimes when Jody and I are bored we'll test the limits of each others' tolerance for the cloven hoof with dialogue that goes something like this:
Laurel: Ok. Would you rather...be forced to wear the ugliest clothing you can possibly imagine, every single day, with no hope of sartorial reprieve--ever, yet be doing your dream job. OR. Wear whatever you want but your job until you retire is to be a taste tester for the incredible, edible Croc. [rumor has it, they are all-natural, and therefore, edible]
Jody: EWWWWW DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE!
