There are certain types of pain in this world that seem to be other worldly. For one, there’s birth. A baby comes OUT OF YOU and that’s all that really needs to be said. For guys, it’s the old kick in the nuts that’s apparently at the top of the pain-o-meter. Biology dictates that neither sex will ever be able to truly empathize with the other on these accounts, but if there is one pain that unites us, it’s the pain of stepping bare foot onto a piece of %#%#& lego. Somewhere, somehow, there will be a stray piece of the danish demoniser, and rest assured your foot will find it, and you will let out wild screams as the pain shoots through your body.
It seems Lego themselves have realized that at the top of every parent’s christmas wish list is to protect their feet from torture, and so they have teamed up with a French advertising agency to make just 1500 pairs of extra padded Lego slippers. Unfortunately the pairs will be going to lucky French parents who fill out this Christmas wish list, but you never know, based on the excitement shown from parents everywhere, maybe they’ll become standard on the shelves!
You can check out just how cushy these bad boy slippers are in this video. In the meantime, may we suggest bubble wrapping your feet on Christmas morning if any Lego will be unwrapped.
