You really do learn something new every day. For example, I never knew that a “vixen” was an actual female fox. I just thought it was something old guys called hot young women.
A vixen has stolen more than 120 shoes from doorsteps in the German town of Föhren over the last year, amassing a collection that would impress even Imelda Marcos. Little bite marks on the laces suggest they’re intended as toys for her cubs.
I know, the obvious joke here is “Heh, womens like shooz,” but I think there’s a much more glaring question: Why the eff do these people continue to leave their shoes on their doorsteps? Come to think of it, why’d they even start doing that? Are they trying to appease the ghost of Dr. Scholl?
Whatever the reason, Der Spiegel reports that “Imelda” (funny stuff, Der Spiegel) continues to filch footwear. Guess she’s waiting for the other shoe to drop.
