Free Flip Flops For Drunken Women in the UK

Too amazing NOT to be true! Police in the UK will be offering free flip-flops to female binge drinkers who keep falling over in their heels.

Believe it or not ... Drunk ladies in high heels in the UK are to be protected - at public expense - from twisting their ankles while drunk. Police will hand them flip-flops to wear outside nightclubs as they head home. The effort is part of a £30,000 drive by police and councillors to prevent ‘alcohol-related harm’.

Superintendent Chris Singer (in the photo on the right) poses with two pairs of flip-flops. As part of a £30,000 health and safety scheme, flip-flops are to be given free to drunk women to prevent injuries on their walk home.

Hmmm, bet Jimmy Buffet would think it's a great idea ... didn't he " blew out a flip-flop, Stepped on a pop-top, Cut his heel and had to cruise on back home," when he was Wasted away in Margaritaville?
