The Art of the Australian Insult

When did it become fashionable to wear a dead platypus?

“While I’m at it, what the hell are men wearing on their feet these days? In the central business district it seems that every second bloke in a suit is auditioning for the role of Sideshow Bob. Either that or they’ve stuck the head of a dead platypus on each foot.

These shoes are long and thin at the end but hey, stupid, your feet aren’t. After a fortnight of wear the toes start flapping around like a wounded bat, making you look even more ridiculous. Have you ever tried walking around in flippers? It’s not unlike a drunken pelican doing an impression of Basil Fawlty. Why don’t you just stick your feet into a couple of Turkish pizzas? It would look less ridiculous, you could go for a stroll, perfume your feet and feed the pigeons at the same time.”

Sydney Morning Herald reader Kenneth Smith has a problem with current men’s foot fashion.
