Kinky boots

Yesterday I succumbed to the repeated invitations out to lunch by a friend who happen to work as a fashion designer and suffers of an insane fixation on frequenting business-approved places only. Living in Milano, we ended up eating horrendously overpriced sushi right at the heart of the fashion empire, surrounded by very evil-looking magazine editors and desperate models. I said something about the number of rather fetish boots around us, which prompted a quick but thorough lesson on the current and future footwear trends – and a flurry of half-remembered memories about “kinky boots”. In example: did you know that up to the 1960s in the United States printing pictures of women wearing heels higher than 3” was illegal on obscenity count?

The worst of it was however the triggering of a maddening earworm. So, to keep up with my own fame as a sadist, here is in all its ridiculousness the lowest point in the career of Avengers stars Patrick Macnee and Honor Blackman.
