Interesting phenomenon 6

What do you call a Frenchman wearing sandals?

Philip Foulop


The recent hot weather has precipitated a plethora of flip flop wearing, which caused me to ponder on today's interesting phenomenon.

When I walk in my flip flops, the noise I make is actually 'flip flop', and rightly so. If it were anything else I would have them under the trade descriptions act.

The flip is made with my right foot, and the flop with my left foot. Now here's the weird thing: Try as I might, I cannot make my shoes go flop flip. I can cheat and start walking with my left foot, but what ever silly walk I employ I can't manage to create a flop with my right foot and a flip with my left.

Try it yourself. If you find a way to flop flip then I want to know how. It would please me enormously.

These aren't my flip flops. Wish they were, they're nice. Bet these could go flop flip.

My left foot always makes the flip. How strange.
