Shoes White People Like

Folsom, California is one of those suburbs that seem to be made up of white, SUV-driving, stay-at-home, soccer moms. Rumor has it the city council tried to change the town’s name to Stepford. And when the editors at Stuff White People Like look for material, they infiltrate Folsom and take notes.

Now, Folsom isn’t racist or anything. They think everyone should have a black friend or two.

While cruising the outlet mall in Folsom today, shopping for shoes, I came across this:

It was the only pair in the store.

We close today with a few search terms recently used by wierdos to get to Nanny Goats In Panties:

where to buy contraband fireworks on the web no questions asked

i have goats in my pants

panties obama

i know a weeny man

weenie man music

can goats poop out cans

Oh, and just one more thing, as Columbo would say: Thank You to William over at Dead Rooster for adding NGIP to his blog roll.

    Haha…somewhere, someone at Naturalizer is being fired. Or having to take “sensitivity” classes before naming any more shoes. Loved it!

  8. I found a box of my stuff from when I was a kid. A Crayola crayon that I would have called “Dark Brown” was actually called “Negro”.

  9. Madge says:

    i’m seriously trying to figure out how someone came up with that name and was so clueless.

  10. honeywine says:

    ROFL! I was going to ask if that black friend’s name was Token ala South Park, but I guess they’ve already used that one.

  11. Jinksy says:

    How does someone decide on a color name like that?
    Way too funny.

    Who knew Naturalizer would be racist. Maybe Keds, but Naturalizer? *shock*

  14. DeadRooster says:

    You’re welcome! I had to add Nanny Goats to the blogroll–it’s just too funny!
    When I was a kid, my school bought milk from “Friendly Dairy.” The milk cartons they gave us were far too small to use full words like homogenized, so they abbreviated it and, on the side, in bold letters were the words, “Friendly Homo.”
    Which, as you can imagine with a bunch of seventh-graders, was a riot.

  15. Margaret says:

    OK, so who is going to own up to “i have goats in my pants”?

  16. ali says:

    “panties obama” was how i got to your site…sorry about that. hahahaha

  17. Steph says:

    oh yes, I know Folsom quite well…
    “can goats poop out cans?” WHAT???

  18. Well, we know these shoes would be the first thing killed in a movie.

  19. SinisterDan says:

    All of my shoes are black, so I guess I’m a progressive.
    …and very, very dull…

    You have nothing to be afraid off, unless you decide not to be funny anymore. This is between me and the Big Headed Jerk.

  22. Aileni says:

    Thanks for letting me know, Margaret – it really is quite a ‘feel at home’ landscape.

  23. Acorn King says:

    Ha, awesome. I was the token white guy in my last neighborHOOD.

  24. Margaret says:

    Bee: Ha ha! Sorry for calling you a wierdo.
    Jasper Mocks: Oh no! You’ve found me. I’m in deep doodoo now! *runs and hides behind a sapling*

  25. Bee says:

    “i know a weeny man”
    That was me.

  26. When we were in Australia for our honeymoon, we saw a sign in a window that said, “White Ladies Funeral Home.”
    I am still scratching my head, wondering if that means what it seems to mean….
    I have a picture somewhere on my computer, I should blog about it one day.

  27. don says:

    At least it wasn’t White Inter-loafer.

  28. jasper mocks says:

    You thinking the humiliation game is fun? Would you want to be the victim of a personal attack?
    I am very real, as is my anger.
    But, I can laugh at your post.
