Friday Wisdom – Shoes

This week I had a few medical tests done. Mostly routine, but I did have to get an x-ray of my foot. I have plantar fasciitis and it’s flared up recent. Likely, I just need to get some specially made, expensive shoe inserts so here’s what I know about shoes:

I went to get gas this morning and the pumps weren’t working so I went inside and asked the lady at the counter, “Do you have your pumps on?” She said, “No, I’ve got my sandals on today.”

Did you hear about the fire at the shoe factory? It was sole destroying.

I meat a guy who’s an expert at making clown shoes – it’s no small feet.

There’s a shoe repair shop in town run by a married couple. They’re sole mates.

I remember when I was a kid when my brothers and I wold race to put our shoes on – it always ended in a tie.

What type of shoes does bread wear? Loafers.

Shoe Quote of the week: Is it better for a shoe to be or not to be? Sockspeare

Have you noticed that Winnie-the-Pooh doesn’t wear shoes? He has bear feet.

Little known fact: The world’s most famous footwear philosopher is Sockrates.

My young grandson once asked me, “Can you put my shoes on?” I said I’d try but I didn’t think they’d fit me.

The most popular shoes among artists are Sketchers.

Little known fact: Slippers are made from banana peels.

Did you hear about the computer that went into a shoe shop? It needed to be rebooted …

I wasn’t sure that orthopedic shoes would improve my posture, but I stand corrected.

Running shoes are great when you’ve forgotten something – they can really jog your memory.

I was discussing shoes with my plumber and he said the only shoe he hates are clogs.

  1. A couple of my blogging friends suffer from plantar fasciitis which is why I know what it is. It sounds very uncomfortable, Andrew, and I hope the shoe inserts work. Thanks for the jokes, they are funny!

    My question today is, do you ever remember any of these off the top of your head when you need to? You’ve given us hundreds – if not thousands – of worth-repeating zingers, yet darned if I can remember a single one when someone says, “Tell me a joke.” I miss my younger brain 🙂

  4. Ah, I feel your pain…literally. I too have dealt with plantar fasciitis. Not fun, but I did purchase some shoes (expensive) that helped me tremendously. But there’s no joke in that. Needless to say, I still enjoyed yours today! 😉

    I particularly liked “orthopedic shoes” because it was unexpected and very clever. Thanks for sharing a bit of humour with us all !

  10. You’ve got some super funny ones in there. Years ago I had planter fasciitis, PAINFUL! I got a shoe insert, wore it for a while, it was good. Then I bought some contractions to pull my toes forward, I’m sure they told you about that too. It helped. I don’t know how long it took for it to go away, but I haven’t had it again for YEARS! I hope I don’t jinx myself by remember it. LOL. Feel better.

  11. Groan, groan, groan. Love Sockspeare and Sockrates. (Hope you ended up with Good Feet inserts. Yes, expensive, but I’ve used mine for years and now I can hike around the loop!)
