Monday footwear

Another mystery hide.  I paraphrase the Charlie Sheen of philosophers: “Jerry Coyne is a man who can’t pass a(n) ________ in the street without mistaking it for a pair of shoes.”  Fill in the blank.

      Evangelist would be harder to swallow, but skinwise similar to pagan!

        No apologies needed, Dominic 😀
        Is it wrong of me to feel a little bit proud of this evil, church-pillaging forefather (except he, of course, in all probability isn’t MY forefather)

          More likely to be one of my ancestors – if he manage to ravish before my other ancestors got him…

        This site is on Mountain time. JC is on Central time, so it was 5:27 here. Normal people are up then. Cats are up then, trust me.

          Ah – puddy-tats demanding food & attention! I was awake at 4am – probably due to a bus stopping outside!

          Normalcy is greatly overrated.

    The day you sport a pair of boots made of Croc AND duck will be a fun day indeed!

      Yep. I hasten to add that these are made from skins of animals that are legally culled.

        Schweet! Only reason I got this is because I happen to be looking at a pair of hippo boots at the local western store about a month ago.

        Wo, pachyderm boots!

        Please tell me you don’t have any elephant boots, however legally culled.

      Darn. Beat me to it.

      Hmmm. St. Augustine really should have moisturized more. His skin looks a little rough.

    Reminds me of a quote by Robert Solow (1 recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics) about Milton Friedman (another recipient of the NMPE):

    “Another difference between Milton and myself is that everything reminds Milton of the money supply. Well, everything reminds me of sex, but I keep it out of the paper.”

    Alligator. Or are we talking about the current set of boots made out of Christian skin?
