Because you asked so kindly

Two little issues I thought I'd address before I'm off in bookland for the weekend:



GOT YOUR ATTENTION NOW! ...I'm so sorry.

Q: How can you buy Crocs for the videos/pictures? Isn't that just supporting the company you've worked so hard and so wittily to undermine? Hypocrites!

A: Calm down, you. The Crocs we use in the videos are, of course, not brand name. Neither Vincenzo or I has ever given a penny to the company, so you can rest easy knowing that we are not hideous liars. We buy them at the dollar store, usually. Terrible, cheap imitations of terrible, overpriced shoes. They are, in a way, effigies. We get the point across visually without supporting Crocs. That's how it is!

Q: Why do you put so much of your time into such a negative, useless effort? You update this blog a lot (recently), don't you have anything better to do?

A: Not really, I'm unemployed. Cue laughter. Ha. No, really, I maybe put more time and effort into this than I reasonably should, for a website with only one subject matter, but think of it this way. How many times a day does Perez Hilton update? What about Go Fug Yourself, or WWTDD? Those sites are mean-spirited and exist only to mock people, whereas we're a little more light-hearted and not targeting any one person. We're targeting a shoe.

And hey, if you'll forgive me for starting a sentence with 'and,' I spent four hours yesterday watching the X-Files. I'll spend the next 24 reading Harry Potter. This site takes fifteen minutes to update. Go about your business, haters. To the rest of you, I do so greatly appreciate your kind words and witticisms. You're clever.

PS: To the commenters on the videos, I'm not goth! I was in bad lighting! I have a tattoo of a cupcake, for goodness' sake. Harumph.

PPS: That X-Files/Harry Potter reference really didn't make me seem cool, did it? Oh well. Have a sexy weekend. Get a pedicure.

PPPS: I really love Go Fug Yourself. That site has great writing.

I found your site whilst looking up Croslite on wikipedia. I wanted to find out if what crocs are made of were bio-degradable and I couldn't. Which they are mostly likely not. I'm in one of the 500+ groups on facebook that are in favour of abolishing crocs, and was wondering if you knew anything about the decomposability of them (if thats a word).


PS I would have emailed you but the link wouldnt work.

hahahah okay.
a friend of mine just sent me a line to your site because we are dedicated crocs wearers. i have probably 17 pairs. my whole family wears them too. however i'm of the generation where punky brewster was my hero, so the fact that the shoes are somewhat hideous makes me want to wear them even more! my favorite pair is a pair of rainbow swirl maryjanes.
nevertheless, being a crocs fan, i am still hugely amused by your site. i just read the most recent entries - very funny. your writing is delightfully snide. love it.
hey if you gotta hate something, it might as well be as benign as this. ha. i'm literally still laughing.
keep up the amusing work!

People with fashion sense don't wear Crocs. Granolas who can't afford Birkenstocks buy Crocs.

Vinnie, Kate - fabulous site!

Have you seen this scene from This Hour has 22 Minutes?
http://youtube.com/watch?v=PfHkwJYTVRI

Oh, 22! How priceless.

I love all of these comments from illiterate people who own 17 pairs of crocs.

What does one do with 17 pairs of crocs?

I wish I had answers.

I recently checked out Croc's website. I had no idea there were so many different types of Crocs! Each was more vomit-inducing than the next! I think a poll is in order to determine the most hideous type of Croc.

Keep up the good work!

quick question

are you against name brand crocs only
(the ones i have are Kmart Brand...lol...)

I seen someone wearing these while visiting someone in Chicago and didn't know they were some kind of fashion thing. This chick wore them with socks which reminded me of wearing socks with sandals. They look extremely ugly, cheap, and plasticy. Honestly, I thought she was being lazy that morning and kept on her shower shoes. It's kind of funny that people thing they actually look good. Someone actually said "they look nice with some outfits." Yeah, like a towel and shower caddy.

You guys are awesome :) I can't believe how offended some people get at the site! And they're always the ones that can't spell or use proper grammar to save their lives.

Wow, and a reference to Go Fug Yourself, the X Files and Harry Potter in one post? It's almost too much.

Viva the cause!!

nay, the X-Files and Harry Potter reference made you seem TOTALLY cool. ;-) It's been too long since I've had an X-Files marathon! :D
