Slipper Contest!

When Edward and I were kids, we always had really fun slippers. The ones that stick out were my Bert & Ernie slippers (one of each, obviously), and Edward's monster feet (big furry black feet with brown claws) and his frog ones. I think the frog ones were so spectacular because of their sheer impracticality. They were large and green, with googly eyes. And legs. It was the legs that caused the problem, because when you walked, they got tangled up with each other and then you fell down. Minor design flaw...

So I opened my Christmas present from Edward this year, and what did I see?


So, you say, where do we come in?

They need names. Good ones.

As some background - they have personalities. As you can see from the photo, the one on my right foot (left side of the pic) is much more assertive and generally happier. Not that the one of the left foot isn't happy, he just doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve so much.

Names in the comments! Winner gets...hmm...worldwide fame. :)

James suggested 'Osling' for the left one but has yet to come up with a second name. And he's too young to be on Blogger by himself.

A- those are fantastic!!

FreuDianne and Slip.Err (maybe not) Slipper get it? Yikes that's awful.
Freudian Slip must win hands down, (feet down) for worst name attempt in history of man.

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb?

What about Sunny and Moony?

You could name one Peking, but I can't think of a good matching name to go with that.

Or there's always Fred and George...

Well, the pair to "Peking" could be "L'Orange" but I've been trying to come up with other ideas and am coming up blank so far...
