The Flip Flop
Right out of the gate, he had this to say...
"I would that it goes hand in hand with 'Get thee to a pedicurist!'"
After discussing how the flip flop is embedded in our culture and here to stay, no matter who wears them to The White House, the show makes mention of extremely high-end flip flops.
There's a $850 pair made by Dolce & Gabbana, or these by Havaianas with a strap that is inlaid with diamonds and 1,636 feathers made out of 18 karat gold that cost - - and this is the truth - - the "actual retail price" as Bob Barker used to say - - $19,840!!
My last CAR didn't cost that much!
Do you know how many hustlers you can buy with $19,840?!?
Well, I don't but Ted Haggard does...
Anyway, Charles Kuralt mentions in the voice over that, when they're that expensive, you mustn't refer to them as a flip flop.
Mr. Gunn responded with...
"You spent HOW MUCH for a FLIP FLOP?!?"
"Once it becomes embellished and dressed up, people start to refer to it as a 'sandal'"
(He lets out a HUGE laugh)
