The entry reads:

46627638_full.jpgThese won’t be comfortable to wear or even be long-lasting but they do come with an interesting provenance. They are size 8.

It has been claimed they were recovered from a rubbish bag collected from Parliament Buildings.

Inquiries indicated that a practical jokester on National’s front bench carefully constructed them as a birthday present for Opposition Leader John Key. (When approached Gerry Brownlee denied any knowledge and suggested trying Maurice Williamson who said he was aware of them but he wasn’t involved!) When a senior party member suggested that the gift was entirely inappropriate and that they were likely to fall into the wrong hands the jandals were quietly disposed of.

In case you can’t read the wording in the photo at the toe end it says “I will lead the next Labour Government”

Under the photo of John Key it says “Flip over for my policy statements” (These are very revealing!)

In small type along the side it says ” Handcrafted by Helen Clark”

And at the heel it asks ” Is this the Key to success?

They’re more kitsch 3D art than footwear or maybe a cartoon (shoetoon?).

Here’s the link.
