Poor Pammy ...

It has taken her around a decade or more to figure out that ugg boots - a quintessentially Australian piece of footwear, along with thongs - or flip-flops, as some of you foreigners like to call them - are made from sheep, dead sheep, skin and all.

”I'm getting rid of our Uggs - I feel so guilty for that craze being started around Baywatch days - I used to wear them with my red swim suit to keep warm - never realizing that they were SKIN! I thought they were shaved kindly? People like to tell me all the time that I started that trend - yikes! Well lets start a new one - do NOT buy Uggs! Buy Stella McCartney or juicy boots - I'm looking for alternatives myself for my boys and the men in my life! I'm designing some right now for my family and will try and have some available on my website soon.

It's what I grab by my door in the mornings to bring my kids to school or walk my dog on the beach at 6am or anything early - I've definitely over used them - and that's it!!!!”
Strange thing is, her PETA buddies keep her up to date with all kind of false information about animal practices, not to mention their own practices, yet none of her PETA pals have ever thought to tell Pammy that she was wearing dead sheep on her feet - dead sheep that had most probably, once upon a time during a healthy life, been subject to mulesing.

Which part of the label “Made From Sheep Skin” did Pammy not understand?

  1. What maroons. Don't they know what leather is? I've got no sympathy for such fools.
