A Monster of a Slipper!!

The story below was found at the Huffington Post site today - you can't make this stuff up!

Londoner Tom Boddingham received this a gigantic 1,450 monster claw slipper from a Chinese manufacture who missed a decimal point in his order.

The 27 year-old from Ilford, East London, tried to order a special size 14.5 shoe to fit his one oversized foot, but ended up with a seven-foot long novelty claw from Monster Slippers. They sent him a normal sized slipper for his other foot.

The British-based company blamed a translation error in Hong Kong.

A company spokesman said: ‘They messed up and didn’t notice the decimal point, so here we are with a blinking great slipper that’s equivalent to a size 1,450.”

Boddingham, who can fit snuggly inside his enormous footwear, said: “it measures the same length as a grizzly bear or a family car".

He plans to sell it on eBay.


  1. I hope he sells the regular-sized one with it. What the hell use is ONE slipper?

  2. Ha ha...too funny! You too, Debra... :)

  3. Would make great twin beds! Would have loved those as a kid.

  4. I say "nuts" to eBay!
    I'd keep it to sit in while watchin TV!
    ...Being that I (technically) only had one foot, my loving wife (you guessed it - Jane) would have to wait on me 'hand and FOOT'!

  5. I would use is for a cat bed, They like to snuggle into something cosy and be up higher from the floor.

    I wonder if they tried to charge him extra on the order?

  6. I like everyone's suggestions and I personally think he should keep it - it makes a great sleeping bag :)
