Fugly Friday - the Late Edition

Sorry guys, I know it's late in the day. But at least it's still Friday for quite a bit.
Today's submission comes from Vicki, found at the bottom of this page. (No pattern, sorry.)
Um....they're kidding, right? This is a joke? Because it would be a pretty good one.
I'm generally not into knitting things for the sake of knitting things. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. But at some point, someone decided they wanted to knit a high-heeled shoe.
Okay. If that's what you want to do, if that's what you really feel is missing from your wardrobe, okay. Knit it.
But why the weird stripes?
And why, for the love of god, pompoms?
Why with a sock that doesn't match? And more importantly, why isn't the sock at least handknit? If you're going to go to all that trouble to cover an uncomfortable shoe with knitting, you'd think you'd at least want a comfortable handknit sock.
How are those weird ropes attached? And why?
Is anyone else as confused as I am?

Dude. That makes absolutely no sense. For the love of God, why the pompoms? Ewww!

You know, some times I will try things just for ghits and siggles, but I always try to make them the least obtrusive way as possible... These just scream I knit these to knit these and I want to make you stare at the to the detriment of your eyes...

I'm just WAITING for someone to knit a littler pan liner. Instead of stuff like this that just looks like it walked through one.

DK is right--why the pompoms?? But even more pressing, why a freaking stiletto heel? Oh, I had some very clever remark about F**K Me Slipper/Pumps but I am still so boggled that I can't remember it. Phew. Fugly.
