Flip-flops 'ban'

#1
Council workers have been told not to wear flip-flops and other inappropriate clothing to work during the hot weather.
Plymouth City Council told staff they "shouldn't be showing too much flesh and flip-flops are a definite no-no".
Unions said staff were working in "uncomfortably hot" offices.
The council said there were "no set rules" but it had asked staff not to wear flip-flops in the "polite reminder".

Hardly a news story, we had a similar ban on flip-slops when I was in the army. Not because it looked out of place but because it was difficult to bull five toe nails up to an acceptable standard.

Idi Amin did that.


Banned wearing Flip Flops in Entebbe. The punishment was being locked up until you'd eaten them.

He the leader and the ruler and the king of the sea.

I would suspect that an entire office of Janners displaying their webbed feet to all and sundry would be reason enough to keep the fuckers thoroughly shod at all times.

What, not even by burning off the irregularities with a hot spoon and applying bags of Kiwi, spit and then small circular polishing movements?

Quite right as well - why should we council-tax playing plebs be subjected to the sight of oozy toenails seeping fungal jam and the names of all 8 children and various partners tattooed in rose barb-wire from the meta-tarsels upwards. Luv, your ID badge tells me your name is Sharon and you are a Customer Services Advisor. Your ankles tell me that you and Kev are going to be together forever and that at least half of your 8 brats are halfcast as the tatooist has done a shit job of covering up the fact that you and Winston, until last year, were going to be together forever....

Saw this on another forum, apparently under EU free trade agreements, he is going to sue.

The French inventor of the stylish footwear, Monsieur Phillipe Ferlop on hearing the news said 'Sacre bleu mon amis, mon globe departer mon pantalons tres rapidement'

If the Council Staff can't drum up an amputee employee to be outraged at the Council's insensitivity then there's something wrong. Probably means they're not employing enough amputees, I'm outraged!
