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.
