I don’t want to beat a dead horse here, but I seriously underestimated popular sentiment when it comes to this Crocs and dudes thing. I mean, just yesterday I was a lonely guy living in Connecticut who happened to be wearing a pair of rubber shoes – but today – BAM – public enemy number one. Listen to this…
I was just downstairs finishing up dinner when I decided to pull out my cell phone. I did a quick Google search for “Men Who Wear Crocs.” That’s the post I wrote yesterday. The reason I searched for that particular text was merely to see if my post ranked for anything. It was a simple request. A simple concern. But nothing is ever quite so simple.
Do you know what I found instead of my post? I found 7 pages of results that told me exactly what America thinks of people like me. It’s heartbreaking but hilarious as the same time. As I paged through the results, I thought of ways to creatively bring you in on the action. I wasn’t able to come up with anything other than a simple copy/paste job of a few of the more precious nuggets. You have to see these.

Honestly, I’m find it difficult to keep up.
