But Can I Get to Heaven on Only $500K?

Aw, crap. If I'd known the gooberment was also going to become the Almighty Arbiters of Good Taste, maybe I ought not have spent my bonus on these:




What's next por Moi? A salary cap? A reassessment of my closet? Confiscation of my Fresca of the Month Club membership?

What the hell is that thing? Looks like the world's fanciest cup holder. Or a barstool that traded in its other two legs for a S&M saddle of some kind.

I might have to start watching the news again so I can understand your blog post today. However, I don't think I'm ready to watch it again yet. The shoes are dynamite though.

Czar: Barbara Bui ankle boots. Those textures at the sides and forefoot are actually cut outs in the leather. It is okay that you do not understand just how awesome that is. "Cup holder" is pretty good, though.

Pam: You'd have to listen to BamBam's lil' speech schimpfing the Wall Streeters who took bailout money. It's in "bad taste" for them to use tax paper money for their own monetary gains. Pot calling kettle black. N'est-ce pas?

To have anyone in the government talk about responsibility is amazing.
I think it's in pretty bad taste to keep nominating tax evaders to cabinet positions...but that doesn't stop B. O.

Aunty Belle said...

holdin' mah splittin' sides! Roarin' hilarious....

hey, Moi, dahlin' ain't ya heered how Obamanation jammed 335 million dollars worth of STD studies into the stimulus pkg...whas' ya reckon that will stimulate? I say 335 million in Blahnik an' Bottega would be a trizillion times more stimulatin'.

Oh, an' how 'bout the free fall of the approval ratings? Huh? Ain't heered that in jes 2 weeks l'enfant plummeted 20 points?

I am truly in awe of you moi that you can walk in them things. When I wear fancy shoes like this anywhere apart from in the boudoir I tend to go arse over tit.

K9 said...

you couldnt begin to address the egregious appointments obaaaaaaama has made. read up on eric holders POV on the 2nd amendment. tim guithner standing by and watching the rip off is now heralded as the "only guy in washington" who can fix this. today on the news was a report on the usa looking for ANY nation who will lend to us. the theft that has happened was to take actual wealth of the taxpayers to cover the bad assets of the richest of the rich who all lobby washington. and they will move to dubai or paraguay after theyve sucked this nation dry like the vampires they are. btw obaaaaaama said no lobbyists in his cabinet. ooops! wait, no. we have to make an exception. then there is the "rock star: status of obaaaaaama and more than i have time for right now. if you hair isnt standing up on the back of your neck you are not paying attention.

now take that boot, dear moi, and thrust it into the metaphorical crotch of the dirty bastards that are turning us into slaves.

Boxer said...

hee, hee. I love those.

the Dread Pirate Rackham said...

nice. I'm there with you on the not-sensible-at-all shoe.

moi said...

Gnome: Surely, a man as bright as our new president would have caught the essential irony of his statement?

Aunty: I have no idea how anything in that bill, except maybe a few tax cuts, is going to help stimulate the economy.

Emma: Lots of practice. And tequila shots.

K9: Oh, believe me, I never put shoes on my feet that don't also double as a potential weapon. Girl's gotta stay on her toes.

Boxer: They're fabulous beyond belief. They belong in my closet. Alas, I am, unlike our Congressionistas, on a BUDGET.

Pirate: Non-sensible shoe wearers of the world unite. You have nothing to lose but your connective tendons.

Heff said...

I'm diggin those shoes, moi.

moi said...

Heff: Are you speaking from your Partridge Family Happy Place or your Russ Meyer's?

Thought for the day:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.” –C.S. Lewis”

moi said...

Gnome: Even though you make fun of my musical taste, I still like the way you think. Thanks for the quote – it’s refrigerator-worthy.

CHEF TROLL said...

I thought this was a post about shoes so I ignored it.

Wow, that was awkward said...

Those are fancy stripper shoes.

moi said...

Troll: Shoes can be put in the service of things other than my feet.

WTWA: Well, I figure since we're all gonna be ho'in' fo' da gubmint soon, I should at least look my stripper best while doing it.

ThursdayNext said...

I think the people have been just as irresponsible with the government. Of course the real evil culprits here are the credit card companies. Criminal, criminal, criminal.

Wow, that was awkward said...

Can I get a government bailout of a big stack of singles then? I know you deserve fives, but times are tough...

moi said...

Thursday: Hey Miss Thursday! I'll agree with you there on us being irresponsible with our own government.

WTWA: Now, see, it makes no sense to me that Da Stimulus PKG includes new schools in districts who don't need them but no $$$ for the porno industry.

czar said...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The best stimulus for the American economy right now would be the immediate legalization of gay marriage in all 50 states. Just think about the shopping and planning and home buying and decorating, etc., that would ensue. For all of you end-timers who think it's an abomination, well, where are we heading anyway? And it's not like heterosexuals do such a good job with marriage. Why not spread the wealth, so to speak?

moi said...

Czar: What is it a shared client of ours aways says: "Give us the right to marry, we'll gentrify your neighborhood, AND double your stock price in Pottery Barn." Bwahahahahahaha!

Wow, that was awkward said...

Well, rumor has it there is a lot of money in porn already. They must know what they are doing. Perhaps we need porn leaders in the government?
