LUCKY SHOES CAN’T PARK CAR – posted 11-08-09

We’ve all driven down the road or highway and seen the occasional shoe lying on the shoulder. You might have wondered, “How did that shoe get there”, or “does Kimmy really love me”? It’s not very often that you get to see two shoes left behind…

Is there anything more gross than used shoes

 shoes tight


…especially so neatly arranged. It’s like the shoes wanted me to take their picture. Who am I to deny the power of the shoes?


As you know driving a car is really hard. There are all these other cars on the road driving around like crazies. The most difficult part of driving is of course parking. You know what grandma use to say, “The bigger the car, the bigger the problem”.

 bad parking

My guess is that the person in the Honda didn’t want to leave anytime soon.



Egg On!

—Riddle Me Rooster—


The answer to last weeks riddle was “Fish and Ships”, but I agree with Scott, CLT’s answer was pretty good, so CLT wins and so does Scott for telling me CLT was good at innuendo. Please enjoy, (and share) a slightly used pair of black shoes. I’ll let you guys figure out who gets left and who gets right.



Tonight’s riddle:


A cowboy rides into town on Friday, stays the weekend and rides out on Friday. How is this possible?


Submit you’re answer as a comment for the chance to win fabulous make-believe prizes and come back next Sunday for the answer. Good luck!

  1. Nice documentary pics RR.

    As to your riddle: This cowboy is Bad Bill and Bad Bill can leave anytime he wishes.

  2. I think you may have gotten the pics out of chronological order. The guy who owns the Honda must have taken his shoes off so he could better implant his foot up the SUV driver’s ass. Either that or somebody had a kick ass day at Payless.

    He stayed for eight days?

    • Scott Oglesby, you’re right. I have no concept or control of the time/space continuum/millennium.

  3. Unless, the horse’s name was Friday?

  4. Shite!

    I’m late!

    Ditto what the faux-Spaniard said.

    Nice selection of shots. I’d take both those shoes and wing them at the head (in a disrepectful Mideastern sort of way) of the Chevy driver. I see all too much of that sort of bullshit parking nearly everywhere.

    You buy the goddamn truck/SUV so you can feel “big” and “protected.” Good for you and your terrible self-image. But do us all a favor: park way the hell out in the uncharted territories of the parking lot until you learn how to wrangle the beast into tight spaces.

    • Capitalist Lion Tamer, you’re never too late to win. Humans and SUVs don’t mix, that’s why knifes and BB gun sales are still very high. Nothing feels quite like slashing a $300 tire or taking out a couple of headlights from the bushes.

  5. I dont drive an SUV but I do drive a full size truck. That does make me feel big and protected thank you very much, and I’m not a good driver either. Just keep your tiny little car out of my way.

    The answer to last weeks riddle is hilarious. I didn’t even think of that.

    As for this week (Yes I know I’m a week late. Ok fine, a couple of weeks late, ok almost a month but who the hell besides you is counting????)

    I’m sticking with the girlfriend being named Friday. She’d be a Gal Friday right?

    • Claire Collins, I like a person who admits that they’re a bad driver. It’s very reassuring to those of us scared shitless in tiny cars.

      • At least if you’re in a tiny car you’re probably safer than how you typically cross the road.

        • Claire Collins, that is a valid point. Better to take the full blunt of a full-size truck in a tiny car than with one’s beak.

          • Just fly over the top of the truck as I go by.

            Oh, that’s right.

            Can’t do that can you?

            • Claire Collins, it’s not that I can’t, it’s that it’s not dignified for cocks to fly.
