They're comfortable!

Thanks to alert reader Alex, who has tipped me off that in Mike Judge's new movie, Idiocracy, where Luke Wilson's character wakes up in the future to find that everyone has become an idiot, as in moron, what shoes do these future dimwits give him to wear?

Crocs.

This is a scarier vision of the future than Mad Max or Waterworld, y'all. I would rather fight mohawk sportin' leather-clad homocidal maniacs for gasoline -- I would even rather be forced to fall in love with a jet-skiing, mulleted Kevin Costner -- than face a future where Crocs are the footwear of choice.

(Read more about how much I hate Crocs here.)

Orange even, ugh!

I recently had a sex dream about my hockey coach, so I was really antse about seeing him last night at my lesson. But when I walked in the rink, he had on a pair of Crocs... I'm sure he will not be popping up in my dreams anymore.

Sorry: antsy

I'm really starting to hate them too.

That movie sounds like it might be good. Hell, Greg Pitts - the "Oh"-face guy from "Office Space" is in it. He's a funny fucker.

Deliberate social commentary? Or do you think they're on the Croc bandwagon?

Megan said...

Oh, and GKL. . .popping up, huh?

Kristi: Yeah, what a buzz kill.

Grant: We should start a web ring!

Chris: Funnier than the number of theatres it's opening in might suggest, but not funny enough.

Megan: My guess would be his costume designer has a small budget and a sense of humor.
