News, but not the serious kind
Them flip-flops ain’t makin’ it, honey!
Over there in Britain, some unions have set off a heated debate by demanding that women have the right to wear comfortable shoes in the workplace.
Guys, in case you’re total morons, “comfortable” is a code word for ugly.
My first reaction to this was fine, there’s no job where a woman really needs to wear stiletto heels, but after doing some research in our photo archive, I found quite a few.
It turns out you need high heels for farming, riding a motorcycle, running for vice-president and working in a car wash, just to name a few, and that’s not even to mention how much you need them if your job is being Jennifer Aniston.
Also, a group of foot doctors has muddied the waters by saying that wearing high heels can cause blisters, corns, calluses, foot, knee and back pain. Well, boo hoo! Speaking for Jennifer Aniston, I can live with that.
