Please make them stop with the fake shoes

I am in actual distress over this. Ladies, I regret to inform you that Jellys are back.

This is from Wikipedia : "They were very popular in the 1980s till the 1990s when a pair could frequently be purchased for under a dollar."

Worse, Bloomingdales now has a pair bedecked in Swarovski crystals that retail at $115.00.

Is this a sign of the apocalypse? I bet Dr. Zaius knows. Being a post apocalyptic orangutan and all.

America, I weep for us.

my daughter loved her jellies back in the 80's. often it was the only pair of shoes I could get that child to wear so they can't be all that bad.

liberality jellies, like crocs, should not be worn by those over the age of 13.
