I knew being a skeptic would pay off one day. The truth has finally been revealed. This is with big thanks to Alom Shaha:
A man who ordered a special size 14.5 slipper to fit his oversized foot was sent a size 1,450 after the Chinese manufacturers failed to spot a decimal point in his order.
Update? Yeah, I know, I know – it’s most likely as real as a smelly Bigfoot costume filled with innards and put on eBay as ‘Bigfoot bits’ – but I hope it gave you a smile. Bigfoot always has always eluded us – and since the 20th October is the anniversary of the famous Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot film, it does seem to suit the day. Er, pun not intended.
In other news, grades have been submitted, I’m on the verge of recovering from this cold (which means I’ve gone from exhausted and confused to just plain depressed and sorry for myself and big slippers are the only thing keeping me happy) and I’m attending the Q.I show featuring Stephen Fry over the weekend.
So, maybe the world isn’t so bad. I promise to write more sensible things (and less filler-video and weird pictures of things that are keeping me from drowning in my own phlegm) when I’m better.
