A Croc of S***

About six months ago, we had the unpleasant task of regretfully informing you that Croc purses exist. Yes, the same people that brought you Croc shoes you only see flaunted by people in the restaurant industry, gardeners, or serial killers.

From a purely functional point of view, I kind of get why Croc shoes became so popular. (Because it clearly wasn’t for fashion purposes). However, why people would need a Croc purse is beyond me.

And now they are coming out with Croc gloves and I have all but given up on society. I cannot for the LIFE of me figure out why you would need hole-y gloves. Doesn’t that defeat the entire purpose of wearing gloves, to begin with?

Perhaps they are a new edition to the whole “ironic” movement, but even then it seems ridiculous.

But just in case curiosity has gotten the better of you, here is Croc’s newest line of apparel and they make about as much sense as a visor or a sweater with cut-out shoulders.



Amazon Arbitrage

We recently wrote a news report about a man who had swindled millions of dollars from Google and Facebook by simply sending them fake bills that they supposedly owed.

Ruthless though it was, it’s hard not to laugh a little. I mean, had it been that poor old woman living down the street, that would have been one thing. But two of the biggest conglomerates in the world… that’s kind of funny.

Well, apparently it has happened again – only this time, Amazon was the victim. Some mastermind from Spain had his own con going in which he would order Amazon items, return them back, and get a refund. Only, he wasn’t returning back said item. He was filling the box up with dirt instead and reselling the product that he had originally bought.

Here’s how the young man finally got caught.
