French Sports Minister Lost Bet, Wore Pink Crocs to Cabinet Meeting

The French Health, Youth, and Sports Minister Roselyne Bachelot made a bet with the French Olympic athletes: if they came home with 40 medals from the Beijing Olympic Games, she'll wear pinc Crocs to work.

The French athletes did just that (they got 7 gold, 16 silver, and 17 bronze medals), so the Minister made good on her words!

Minister Bachelot wasn't the only politician ever to wear crocs - here's President Bush in black Crocs (with socks!)

I wear my crocs everyday. I have the Mommoth, they have fleece in them.. but are better worn with socks.. They are the best pair of shoes I have.. Even after standing at work all day, no pain.. Ugly, sure maybe.. but if they are comfy, who cares!
