Is It a Shoe?

By Miss Plumcake

Last week I introduced my loyal readers at Manolo for the Big Girl (which is about way more than big girl stuff, in case you’re interested but are worried about catching fat from the internet) to the fun new game, “Is It a Shoe?”

The rules are easy. I provide an image of something that may or may not be footwear, and you answer two simple questions:

Is it a shoe?

If not, what is it?

The winner will be picked the next week and lauded with palm branches or whatever else I find handy.

Ready? Let’s play!

Is it a shoe?

Remember, points are awarded on wit, intellect and gratuitous references to Joan Crawford. Just kidding, there’s no such thing as a gratuitous reference to Joan Crawford.

    It’s an infant Snorgglepuff, the illegally bred offspring of a Blast-ended Skrewt and a Hinkypunk. Hagrid keeps them hidden in the Forbidden Forest, safe from the Ministry of Magic’s Dept for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. Although it looks docile, it can shoot spines and breath fire in self-defense. Also, it’s very fast on its foot.




  2. Dia Says:

    It IS a shoe, designed most cunningly for the punk-rock satyr on the go!

    Giuseppe Zanotti breaks my heart. OTOH he says:

    I like to see woman. Because I understand more from the woman. You know, the woman, the walk, the talk, the woman…movimenti… dance. She’s like a dance. She is a beautiful wild animal when the woman walk. She’s beautiful. She’s like a panther, no?

    And then he offers us these.

    It’s the medieval torture device, or perhaps the weapon. It is not meant to be worn on the foot. NO WAY!




  5. marvel Says:

    P.S. I forgot to mention that Joan Crawford once used an infant Snorgglepuff as an evening clutch.




  6. Julie Says:

    I don’t know if it’s a shoe or a weapon, but it really should come with a free tetanus shot.

    Did my comment get eaten, or did I just fail at posting it?




  8. Fran Says:

    Lady Gaga and Damien Hirst are proud to present their first child; it will be auctioned in a Qatari art gallery at the modest asking price of 2,375 gazillion of the US dollars.




  9. Sarah G. Says:

    Lady Gaga’s meat tenderizer for those times when you have a meat dress and nowhere to wear it. Also perfect for dealing with the rats in the cellar.




  10. Jo Says:

    Not a shoe. This is a sad genetic experiment gone wrong. This is what you get when you cross a porcupine with a magpie – a fetish for spines and shiny things. We should put it out of its misery, as it would never survive in the wild. However, we’ll probably see it around some pecuniarily over-endowed chit’s ankles as the latest fad for fashion pets continues.
