Look at this shoe! What happened?

I’ve been wearing it since September 2005, although it looks like September 1998. Shouldn’t a shoe last longer than nine months? (At least the other one is all right.)

It’s made by Bass Shoes. I recommend avoiding Bass Shoes.

Sidenote: In a few hours, I’ll be advertising Bass Shoes in my Google Ad box at right. The boys at Google haven’t yet cracked the code on negative brand references.
