The Crocs

Manolo says, many of the Manolo’s internet friends they have been sending the Manolo the letters asking about The Crocs, which they are apparently, the “hot” trend in the footwear for the lazy person.

Crocs - Beach (Light Blue) Manolo Does Not Like!
Manolo says, this above it is the shoe for the man. Notice how it differs from the shoe for the woman, below.
Crocs - Beach (Light Blue) Manolo Does Not Like!
Manolo says, exactly. They are the same shoe!

The Crocs people they seem to belive that the womens and the mens they deserve the exact same shoe.

Perhaps, this it will be true in the socialist utopia of the future when the differences between the genders they have been eliminated by the selective breeding, but not yet. We, happily, still live in the world where the shoes for the man and the shoe for the woman they are different.

Yet, in the fact, the Crocs people they are not only stubborn in their misguided insistance on leveling the differences between the sexes, but they are stubborn in their unstylishness.

These they are indeed the shoes of a hypothetical distopian future, one in which the inmates they must be dressed in the footwear least likely to be useful in the popular uprising against the regime.

Yes, the defenders of the Crocs they will speak, as the defenders of the ugly often do, of the great comfort of this “shoe”. Manolo asks you, why must the “comfort” always be the war cry of those who would lead us into the bad shoes?

Manolo says, comfort and style they are not incompatable, one does not obviate the other.

Finally, the defenders of the Crocs they will tell you that the Crocs they cost only $35, which seems cheap, until one realizes that they are manufactured out of the plastic rings used to hold the packs of six. Not the good value at half the price.

For these reasons, the Manolo he has consigned the Crocs to the Gallery of the Horrors

P.S. Here is someone who differs with the Manolo on the matter of the Crocs.

    Manolo – How do you intend to remain Superfantastic if you do not embrace your Inner Croc? Croc/Prada – a polydactyl yin/yang.

    The woman who did my X-rays (I fell off my sandal and sprained my ankle) was wearing Crocs. They looked great for wear with scrubs. But that’s all they would look good with…

    Why they do you keep they putting the word “they” in inapropriate they places in they your sentences? Seriously, that’s just weird and very frustrating to read. Cut it out. And yes, I would they agree with you. Crocs they are ugly indeed. They.

    They are the most comfortable shoe out there, but I will admit that they are ugly.

    Umm, hello….I am NOT wearing 3 inch high heels just in the name of “fashion”, who cares how ugly they are???? You do not have to wear them….I have a huge 5 inch surgery wound on the side of my ankle as well as a bunion for wearing “fashionable” shoes. I wear closed-toe tasteful black and navy blue (no holes and no pink) Nobody cares and I work in an office…. I wear my “cute ones” for my visits to he hospital for Animal Assisted Therapy and the patients love ‘em. Gallery of Horros belong to the shoes in your headline (high heeled green) I can hear the sound of snapping ankle tendons by LOOKING at that shoe.

    POP!!!!!!!!!!!!
