Prompt: Flip Flop
What a timely prompt, coming on the heels of US President Trump’s capitulation to dictator Vladimir Putin of Russia, exposing himself as a dupe and a puppet, and cravenly trying to backpedal a day later.
But no, I am on a Trump news break in the interests of my own sanity and desire to live so this brief post is not about one of the most disgraceful flip flops in US history.
I grew up calling flip flops, those cheap little rubbery sandals with the toe piece, thongs. They will never be frickin’ “flip flops”– what a ridiculous mouthful for a deceptively simple bit of footwear.
But then some skimpy underwear interfered. Ok, stringy torturous women’s panties are called “thongs” so god forbid we every refer to rubber sandals using the same term we use for an intimate garment.
When I say, “I’m gonna wear my thongs” it is definitely your problem if you think I will be donning multiple string panties.
Thongs are footwear, too.
The first cartoon of today’s small collection of favourites is connected to today’s prompt, “flip flop” so please enjoy!
The last cartoon above is kind of illuminating isn’t it, with regards to why feminism exists?
Have a wonderful evening!
