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!)

Neatoramawontsendmeapassword, I quite like my Crocs flip flops (which my wife bought for me from Singapore of all places). They're quite comfortable!

BTW, why didn't Neatorama send you a password?

They may be the most comfortable shoe in the world but I cant get past the ugly factor. Also, I think from a style standpoint they should only be worn in situations where flip flops and sandals are appropriate.

Im not sure if they started here in Colorado but they were huge when the came out. Now, mercifully, they have gone out of fashion, though, you still see a few people that wear them everywhere.

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!

Ahhh now I get it... People use those crocodilish thingys out of betting! That explains a lot and makes me a whole lot more confident about the future of human race...
