The shoes have arrived!

Well, Dutchbitch said she was gonna do it, and she did it. My size fifteen wooden shoes came late yesterday! Ain't they pretty? It is hard to tell from the photos, but they are very yellow.

She had them customized just for me, with my name on the right one...

And my shoe size on the left one, for all to see...

Isn't she the greatest? I now love her. It's official.

I am not sure, but I have been doing some reading on the Dutch culture, and I am pretty sure that this gift signifies that Dutchbitch and I are now engaged. Now, I am of course already married, but that won't be a problem because as I understand it, the Dutch goverment allows you to have up to five wives. All I have to do is apply for dual citizenship.

Here is a picture of me kicking back and relaxing with the shoes on. Don't they look comfortable? Perfect for wearing at a dinner party, or just lounging around the house.

Note: Well stupid blogger won't let me upload the picture. I've tried about 20 times. Damn you, blogger, I hate you, I hate you!

They are pretty heavy. Someone had suggested to me that I post a picture with one of them hanging off my know. And Lord knows I was so excited when I saw them that there was definite swelling in my nether regions, but they are really heavy. It's a lovely appendage, and comes in handy quite often, but a load bearing organ it is not.

I am really looking forward to the big move to The Netherlands. Of course, you will all be invited to the wedding ceremony. It is going to be tough deciding on who will be in the wedding party, but I am sure we can find a spot for some of you.

Here are a few other tidbits I came across when researching my soon to be adopted home country:

  • In times of severe drought or food shortage, Dutch parents are encouraged by the goverment to eat their young.
  • Not realizing that the word can also mean "a bank usually of earth constructed to control or confine water", thousands of lesbians flock to The Netherlands every year only to leave shortly thereafter, bitterly disappointed.
  • They worship Richard Simmons like a God over there.
  • The official mammal of The Netherlands is the guppy. Which speaks volumes right there.
  • The Dutch have 37 words for "nipple".
  • The Swiss Miss on the cocoa packages? She was a hooker.
  • Every member of the Dutch soccer team can reproduce asexually, like amoeba.
  • Upper class Dutch women douche with Yoo Hoo.
  • The virility of Dutch men is measured by how many meat products they can stuff in their trousers.
  • They are still pissed at the Swiss for totally stealing their idea for cheese.
  • Wooden shoes weren't always made of wood. In the beginning they were made from seaweed.
  • Belly button lint is the official currency.

I wrote this entire post while wearing the shoes. True story.

Dutchy, ik houd van u!

Netherland, nether regions, methinks it isn't just a coincidence. I damn well better be in the wedding party and that means you will pay for my passage over, right?!

I need to hook up with a Dutch woman...or five now. Thanks, thanks for that.

Wow. The shoes, they're amazing. You're so lucky! Soon you'll have a lover in every country. Just don't forget Mrs. Fab.

You-Hoo up the wazoo? Not so much.

I think in the event of fire, you should prob make another choice for footwear.

My mom has a pair of shoes similar to that. Not in size or with the personalization, but that red pattern looks familiar. I recommend not hanging them off of anything you don't want swollen for the wrong reasons.

Not only was Swiss Miss a hooker, but she was also Swiss.

After World War II, the Dutch government stopped allowing five wives and now only allows two.

My Dutch isn't perfect and it is self taught (my first language, after all, but raised in the American school systems) but I think you mean "ik houden van jou". DutchBitch will probably correct us both. Still, you are very sweet. I knew what you meant.

By the way, Hans Brinker loves when the lesibians flock to Holland. He is often found with his finger in the dike.

I have often been accused of having "Dutchman's hands" because my fingers are frequently stuck in a dyke.

I'm just sayin'.

Thank You Hon! So for the ceremony his and hers wooden shoes? I would prefer you not wearing your lemur skin suit though... Doesn't go well with the wooden shoes, I think

Shelli--Well, I think Mrs. Fab decides who the chicks are in the party. I'll ask her and get back to you, sis...

Shelli--Brat :)

Mike--You would go over very big over there. I'll test drive a few wives for you and get you some good ones!

Erin--Now Erin, different countries have different traditions. Like in Alaksa, where after the Iditarod there is a three day festival during which they make burgers out of all the losing dogs and everyone eats husky burgers till the brak of dawn.

Marty--Way ahead of you, buddy! I am having them lined with comfy asbestos!

Lynda--Very nice! I see you have been working on some new material. I think you are ready to hit the comedy clubs :)

Anne--It's funny because it's true! :)

KQueen--The perfect footwear when singing karaoke!

Dreamwalker--Is that a drug reference? Are we going to have to stage an intervention?

Dutchy--Well, can I stil wear the lemur skin condoms?

Mandy--Hey, thanks! And thanks for stopping by!

I wasn't kidding about my Dutch. And the Hans Brinker comment is kind of an old joke in my family. :)

Suze--You naughty thing, you :)

Bozette and Noi--I'm still trying! It wouldn't let me post it still today. But it will let me post other pictures, I think. Shelli put it on her flickr account and sent me the html but it STILL didn't work :(

Sandi--Absolutely. And I have it on good authority that Dutch men love cheese curd eatin' rum swillin' dames! :)

Katt--Not if I line them with baby kittens! Soft and furry!

Pud--I do!m I am quickly becoming a class act!

Lynda--I still thought it was funny!

Dutchy--Damn! Well, you knew what I meant. Ik hou van je! :)

Yoo Hoo? Way to court a yeast infection ladies. I want the Monistat consession there.

Size 15 huh? Is it true what they say? You know, that you have big hands?

Blogger D said...

Who knew blogs were such a good way to solicit overseas brides? I need to find something completely representative of my area and send it to you. Maybe a case of beer? But then I'd insist on a video of you drunk on Canadian beer and dancing in the Dutch shoes.

Awwwwwwww I feel the love!! Love the shoes.. I bet they would hurt if you decided to kick someone in the azz, (Just an observation) =)

Oh, and make sure the wedding is before July next year, okay? Otherwise I'll eventually have to fly in from Canada. I prefer a one hour flight to a 7 hour flight :)

Pissy--It will come. Still trying to find a way to upload it...

Sodapop--Ain't they the best shoes ever?

Those are some amazing size 15's, Mr. Fab. I'm impressed with the custom art! I think that you should post a picture of you WEARING them. Other clothing optional.

You forgot to mention that the official color in Holland is glo orange. I'm working with a Dutchman right now and he says this is so.
