Shoe Horny

"Throw out your old shoe horns, and be free !"

My beloved and I just finished discussing the fate of a brace of shoe horns that she uncovered in de-sludging our love nest.

We decided that since every time you buy a pair of shoes worthy of horning they throw in a shoe horn, we could toss the shoe horns as part of our campaign to feng shui our lives in advance of relocating the domicile to a more commuter-friendly location.

Enter Horny Shoes...each piece of footwear comes with a shoe horn boldly announcing itself from the toe of the shoe. Simply use one to put on the other, and then the other to put on the one.

Illustrations would be gratefully accepted.

       What in the world is a shoe horn????

       A pre-tennis shoe invention. You put it in the shoe at the back and slide your heel in over it, thus avoiding breaking down the back of the shoe.

       Nah, come on, shoe horns were devices used by the old Austrain postal service to announce their arrival in remote villages. Mozart wrote a symphony for one.

       Sounds not dissimilar to the sort of headline I used to concoct when I was on a magazine, years ago. This one would be about a quite attractive actress named Elisabeth, starring in 'Cocktail' amongst other films. Of course, her name is spelled Shue.

       Very nice, [norm]. And they'd be great for flicking up dog poo, too. Possibilities are endless, really.

       Genius [norm] - whimsy of the highest order, worthy of the lamented [farmerjohn] himself. Could be tricky on escalators, but [+]

       I would still have to use a shoehorn for my soccer shoes.

       Ok, I'll bite. And why is that?

       (Bi-)Self-enshoeing shoes? Hmm... I've heard wierder ideas.   

       Presumably, if you accidently kick someone whilst walking, their shoe'll fall off... Could be a fly in the oink-ment.   

       [jurist link] I don't want to know why you had that link at your fingertips!... My sister had a pair of them, they squeeked.

       let them dangle and jingle freely from the laces.

       Be great for kicking people up the arse.
