    Oh, dear God, I think you made me pee my pants! The way he raises his head and takes one last, loving look at his clog!

    One day, I hope Leta fully appreciates how totally cool her parents are.

    Are those melted crah-ons on his shirt? I mean crowns?

    Heather, all you have to do is leave the crocs in the car on a hot, sunny day. They shrink! They are so popular in Los Angeles right now, even the hookers on Hollywood Blvd. are wearing them. I wrote about them on my blog, http://rightbrainedgal.typepad.com/my_weblog/2006/05/i_am_coming_cle.html

    Loved the clip. Love your sense of humor.

    Ummm, I don’t wish to create any question of your and Jon’s relationship, or to create gender stereotypes, etc. But does he not realize that those plastic, pretty clogs are….um….for females. Really, the ones with the holes and the strap. Ya, for girls, for sure. Sorry Jon. Go buy some birkenstocks. A little more masculine.

    That was awesome!
    Thanks for posting it.

    I think I pee in my pants with so much laughing… My day is not complete unless I stop by your world… is that chocolate on his shirt? Hilarious, keep them coming!

    Hmm, Jon has the clog, but now Jon is dead. So who won?

  • DivineDiva

    Whatever would I do with out your site dooce? I am telling you its like mommy crack for the soul!

    I tried some clogs on today — partly to confirm their hideousness and partly because I was stuck in the World’s Largest Outdoor Store and it was either that or climb a faux wall while my traveling partner looked at backpacks. (We’re driving across the states at the moment and this theme park of a store was in Denver. Which seems to be the clog capital of the country. At least I tried them on in hot pink. But yes — hideousness confirmed.)

    If you look closely, you’ll see The Former Congressman in the background sunning himself. He’s oblivious to his dying master. Or, maybe someone of his stature doesn’t have time for such tom foolery.

    Funniest Shit! You guys Fucking Kick Ass! Life would be worthless without you and your spare time to do dumb ass funny shit!

    Vive le crocs! You go, John!

    Reminds me of Joel and Ethan Coen’s film school work.

    An ode to a misguided Clog Warrior:

    Jon Blurbomat, here he lies
    Clutching one clog and catching flies
    BEWARE young children! For when he wakes
    The pair of that HORRID clog he will come to take!

    Fuckin’ awesome. Between that and the Hitler cats, you’ve made me smile all week. Thanks, as always.

    My first thought when I saw the “messy” tee shirt was that he had to dig them out from the same place you found the beach towel a while back. Eeew. Nice dramatic effect with the dark circles under Jon’s eyes. Obviously from all the sleepless angst filled nights wondering where his beloved clogs were! Love the soundtrack! You two are a hoot! The sequel should show Heather being taken away in handcuffs.

    I had to wonder also what your neighbors must think! Too funny! I’m glad Jon got his clogs back…even if they are kinda funny looking. If his refusal to give up his clogs is your biggest problem then all is well in the Armstrong household.

    Someone posted a link to Bloomingdale’s Prima Ballet slip on crocs…those were cute!

    The first time I watched this, I was at work sans sound, and was very confused. The dramatic music really made all the difference. :) Good job.

    My 19 year-old brother has a pair of those crocs in lime green. They may be ugly as sin, but at least they don’t smell! Would you rather Jon had smelly feet?

  • Mack’sMom

    Only death could allow for a victory!

    What were your neighbors thinking? Can you only imagine! “Heather finally snapped!! And she’s taping the entire thing!”

  • http://lovegeeks.org Esther


    Time for a rebuttal.

  • http://www.postednote.com eddeaux

    So much drama around your household! I’m envious – of the drama and definitely not envious of the Croc’s. What type of dude wears Crocs? I think Jon could pull it off because he looks like he should be driving a hybrid vehicle and wearing crocs and wearing and iPod and an “I Love Apple/Mac” shirt and drinking a Starbucks. mmmmmm…. starbucks… see you later.

  • Sweetie-darling

    You guys rock! It must be so much fun to live at your house (sewer issues notwithstanding). Though I am concerned by the totalitarian anti-clog dictatorship you have declared, and the ruthless measures you have taken to try to suppress the Clog Liberation Organization Guerillas. Not that I’m pro-CLOG – quite the contrary. I think clogs are nasty. But I am pro-choice. After all, one of the things that makes our country great is freedom! Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to wear whatever hideous fashion choices make you happy, no matter how offensive they are to the eyes of others . . .

    What makes this even funnier are all the comments.

    I have to tell you, I never gave clogs a second look at the store. After this series of entries I’m going to try some on and maybe buy them. :)

    Been reading your blog for awhile but just got the nerve to comment. You guys are great! You speak how I think!

  • leaseuhd

    Oh My God! HILARIOUS! all i could do was laugh and clap – excellent –

  • Kate

    An Oscar-worthy performance. Bravo Jon, bravo.

  • Princess Leia

    General Kenobi, years ago you served my father in the Clog Wars, now he begs you to aid him in his struggle agains the Dooce Empire! I regret that my ship has fallen under attack and my mission to bring you to Alderran has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Footwear Rebellion in Chuck’s brain. Give Leta some M&Ms and she will show you how to retrive it. You must see Chuck safely delivered to him on Alderran. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi…you’re my only hope!

    très rigolo!

    Genius……..perfect in every way

  • kidsmom

    I’m not sure you two at home together all day is proving to be a healthy situation. I think Leta needs help supervising.

  • http://www.snickrsnack.com Snickrsnack Katie

    That is great! I love the music. But seriously, I really can’t tell if Jon won or not. LOL

    Thanks for making me chuckle.

  • gillyblack

    Errrrr ….. I think someone needs a job. You two have too much thinking time!

    I won, and it was a hard fought battle… they don’t call them battle scars for nothing.

  • http://chaithere.blogspot.com AndreaBT

    Wait…I only saw one clog. (weren’t there FOUR in the Chuck picture?) Did he die for JUST ONE CLOG???

    Ah, the pointlessness of it all…that’s war for you ;)

  • http://valerie.beautifulexchange.org Valerie

    Please don’t take this the wrong way…but you guys are nerds! I mean that in the most loving and affectionate way. My husband is a nerd, too. Thanks for the laugh! That was great!

  • virgomezzo

    HOLY CRAP, you guys are the cutest. I can only hope that your neighbors were gathered ’round, mebbe there was a craft service table, definitely someone to cater to the clog stunt double. A class operation, all the way.

    LMAO! Who did the camera work, Chuck or Leta? Is there footage of Chuck licking the ketchup off of Jon’s shirt?

    Ya’ll have got too much time on your hands.

    Thanks for the laughs.

    Thank God Chuck & Leta weren’t harmed in the making of this film. ;)

    Truly, an image of a man who desperately needs to get a job.

    Do you consider this working from home? :)

    maybe you two need jobs.

    i’m just sayin.

    must say I’m impressed by the helicopter audio mixed in. Or was that just a sample of some other suspense movie that just so happened to have a helicopter?

  • AmyFrances

    You all have serious problems. On the other hand, I want to grow up to be just like you.
    P.S. – Jon so reminds me of Dave Matthews. Does he get that a lot? Very sexy, sans clogs.

  • http://www.sparkliesunshine.net Angela

    Haha. You guys are crazy, but I’m glad you have fun together.

    I am also taking this as a win for the clogs. Woohoo!
