Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the $358 Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse shoes:
My mom and I were cooing over a picture of these (c'mon, how could you not love those little ears??) when we turned to each other and said, in unison, "I wonder what a guy would think of these." Lucky for us (and you), we didn't ask a guy, we asked five:
Brother, Age 11: Ratlike. Whiskers are kind of cute. I've never seen whiskers on shoes. Looks like a cat toy.
Brother, Age 17: I'm missing Bourne Supremacy right now. They're fucking mice. Why do I even care?
Editor's note: Jesus, what crawled up his ass?
Brother, Age 20: I actually really like them. They're great. I would wear them.
Father: (Sighs) I knew it had to happen sooner or later.
Boyfriend: Looks like what a third grader would do to her mom's nice new shoes. I mean, they would be nice without the mouse parts. (Tries to conceal a grin)
Me: I'm calling you out. I think you think they're adorable!
Boyfriend: No, no I don't!
Me: Yes you do.
Boyfriend: (Pause and more grinning) So they're kind of adorable...OK, they're pretty fuckin' cute.
So, which profanity-anchored sentiment do you believe best describes these babies--"Pretty fuckin' cute" or "They're fucking mice."? I'm fuckin' excited to hear what you think!
p.s. Sorry if this was the day that you were like, "Grandma, come sit by me and we'll read this wholesome lil' website together!"
