These boots were made for... limping

Posted Today at 04:48 AM by No Good Doney (Some have greatness thrust upon them)

On one of those million and one BBC websites there is a report of this singular phenomenon from the 19th century. The website claimed for a brief time there was a fashion among women to feign a limp in public when there was nothing the matter with them. This was more than a daft fashion mistake la platform soles, regrettable facial tattoos, wearing a baseball cap backwards or twerking.
