Croc’s attack children with help from escalators.

WTF?!?

That’s what I said. Actually I’m talking about “Crocs” footwear, those ugly monstrosities that some people, for whatever reason, chose to wear. Turns out that the material that Crocs are made from sinks into the cracks of the escalators, trapping your foot. This can injure you, should you fail to remove said feet before you reach the end of the escalator. Serves you right for wearing Crocs. You’re an adult, and should know better. Unfortunately, in what I can only describe as mild child abuse, most Croc related injuries are to children, whose cruel parents made them wear these horrible things.

“If I had better fashion sense” is what she should have said.

An example of Croc related injuries can be found at The Associated Press:

Four-year-old Rory McDermott got a Croc-clad foot caught in an escalator last month at a mall in northern Virginia. His mother managed to yank him free, but the nail on his big toe was almost completely ripped off, causing heavy bleeding.

At first, Rory’s mother had no idea what caused the boy’s foot to get caught. It was only later, when someone at the hospital remarked on Rory’s shoes, that she began to suspect the Crocs and did an Internet search.

“I came home and typed in ‘Croc’ and ‘escalator,’ and all these stories came up,” said Jodi McDermott, of Vienna, Va. “If I had known, those would never have been worn.”

They should have never been worn in the first place, lady. Did you look at what you were putting on your child’s feet? Here’s a picture for those of you who have not seen them:

I feel sorry for the kid. Who knows what else she is dressing him in. A sailor suit, perhaps? School will be so much fun for this little guy.
