If you happen to live in Ireland and are driving home in about 20 minutes, make sure to listen to me take on the Director of Crocs-Ireland on The Last Word with Matt Cooper (actually, you can go listen live and just pretend you're driving home in Dublin traffic!) thanks to this post of mine.
If you didn't catch my 4 seconds of fame, let me sum it up for you.
Me: Crocs are ugly and they're dangerous.
Crocs Ireland Rep: They're nowhere near as dangerous as any other shoe out there.
Me: Well then I must have missed all the reports about the dangers of loafers.
(Okay, so it was a bit longer, and I got to say how moms like crocs because it distracts from their mommy belly, and how they're anti-bacterial but when did that become a shoe requirement, AND how Crocs are taking advantage of poor tired moms who just see everyone wearing rubber shoes and we just buy them because HEY if everyone is wearing them including Mario Batali so they must be cool. Then the host called the crocs guy on how they are being banned from hospitals because of static).
And then it was done.
Dang. I had so many good one liners like:
We have to look at warning labels on our toys AND our shoes now?!
I guess they're good if you're planning on being stranded on an island.
When did we rely on boaters to start our trends? I prefer young teenage pop stars to control what I wear.
But, I got to talk to two lads with yummy Irish accents.
Prescott. Get ready for tens of hits from Ireland!
