The Great Recession Hits Christmas

I got this from a friend. Thought I'd share. Let me know if you want me to order you any.

My dear friends,

It is somewhat embarrassing to admit, but I am not getting an annual bonus and Christmas is tight this year. I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes. You will most likely agree that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, we have included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

Attached is a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself awaiting your response, it is important that you inform me of your shoe size as soon as possible, in order to have your slippers in time for Christmas.

The bad news is that I heard they're out of the red-colored slippers.
