  1. …Carlo disappeared into the back room for a moment, and then reappeared carrying an ordinary shoebox. He took off the lid and removed a hideous pair of black and white pumps. But this was not an ordinary pair of black and white pumps; both were left feet, one had a right angle turn with separate compartments that pointed the toes in impossible directions. The other shoe was six inches long and was curved inward like a rocking chair with a vise and razor blades to hold the foot in place.

    WTF?! Why is this demented Japanese spammer concerned that my size 12.5 (28.5cm) footwear is “too Big”?
    Do the spammers want me to wear their “cheap authentic L0u1s Vu1tt0n” bags on my feet?
