"Unlike my penis!"

An Ugg girl and a guy approach the middle of the bus with the raised seats just before the accordion fold of the extended bus.

Ugg Girl: I want to sit up high! I've never been on a high bus like this one before.
Guy: You don't want to sit at the twist!
Ugg Girl: Oh my god! It's twisting! I've never seen a bus twist before! And sitting up high! This is sooooo fun! (giggles like a little girl)
Guy: Yeah, these seats make me feel big!

I love how the fact that she had Ugg boots on clearly adds NOTHING to this story. Anyone who was wearing their shitty old adidas would have found humour and amusement in the high, twisty bus.

have you ever tried on a pair of uggs? they are the most comfortable things in the world. don't be a hater

there's a reason that they're called UGGs and are comfortable: they originated as unattractive (ugly)Australian slippers. The moral of the story is they should never have been adapted to a winter boot, and furthermore, have no business being displayed publicly. Stop wearing them, it's no fashion statement.

It's really sad that those who can't afford the Uggs are usually the ones who hate them. People wear ridiculous looking things all the time for the purpose of comfort. It's called Function in the middle of winter. WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO WEAR SOMETHING THAT WAS ONCE A SLIPPER???? your arguments are both ridiculous and laughable. It's like telling someone to stop wearing toques...most guys look like retards in them, but they DON'T CARE because their heads are warm! GET OVER IT!!!!

See, the thing is Toques are one of the few readily available, economical and most practical hat for winter.

I challenge you to find a winter hat that doesn't make the man look rediculous and keep him as warm in winter.

Now, the biggest flaw in your logic is that because Toques are not necessarily attractive (very arguable point, I think they are kinda cute) and are accepted that UGGS shoul be accepted.

Here's the deal. Toques do NOT cost 400$ each. Also, while UGGS may be fuctional, there are ALOT less expensive yet equally comfortable and arguable MORE functionable boots out there. And you know what? They are available usually for less than half the price of an UGG. And while comfortable winter boots in general may not be the most stylish, at least they are not down-right UGLY.

The truth is ladies, If you actually wear UGGS, you are clearly in fashion denial and really have no say in this.

That is a stupid comment. It sounds as if it used to be a slipper but it was worn too much and now it doesn't look like a slipper anymore. Plus, why would I want to wear something that was once a plastic, summer slipper in the winter? Just because "something" was once a slipper, it doesn't make it comfortable or war, or desired by everyone.

You paid $400 for a pair of ugly boots?? What kind of shallow materialistic moron are you? You're the person my parents warned me about when I was 5 years old when they asked me if I would jump off a bridge if everyone else was. Lets see you flap your arms on the way down, maybe it will help.

Jesus, you'll probably just be throwing those uggs out in a week or two anyway so you could buy those furry abominations with pom-poms that look like you're a friggen yak with hooves. Quite the fashion statement young women are portraying. Feminists keep screaming for respect and women like this just keep making their lives harder.

Take a poll and find out how many guys out there find women more attractive or presentable because they're wearing uggs or furry pom-pom things. I'm willing to bet you'll have a huge majority for "they look f***ing retarded".

I'm pretty sure you didn't pay 400 dollars to wear comfortable boots. I'd bet it was to walk around campus pretending to be rich:) Or, which is just as bad, showing off that you're rich. Why is Western such a giant fashion statement? It's great that our campus is not only good-looking in terms of the buildings, but the people as well, but why put so much of an emphasis on it? Some people seem to forget why we're really here...oh, and "like" is now becoming a very common word in the English language:) Languages change and evolve, and this is simply a demonstration of that fact. I do agree though, everytime I see a girl with UGG boots, or a rip off of them, I feel the sensation to punch them out, for the reasons listed above.
So, just say no to wearing them.

Yes, Like is a popular term, and it even makes it into most dictionaries now as informal idioms for usages such as:
And then Joe was like, "Stop wearing UGGS bitch or i'll find some other whore to......" well u get the point.

It supposedly indicates an informal quotation where you are not quoting the WORDS so much as the attitude/expression. It is accepted along with other informal idioms like Goes and All "He's all..." She goes, "UGGS are stupid, biatch"

Using it in such a way as saying: "Like seriously guys, I'm dumb" isn't appropriate because it is effectively useless, plus it's really annoying. Especially when UGG whores say it every third word.

The purpose of my message was not to impress you with my grammar and punctuation. Alas, it seems that the mere act of putting on my ugg boots (which originated as Australian slippers by the way) has eliminated my correct use of grammar, spelling and punctuation. What power those boots have. This, like, sucks.

I personally think they look like they were designed by a five-year-old out to dinner with her parents who was drawing on the back of the Swiss Chalet placemat, but whatever. I wear my boots, you wear yours, I laugh silently at your fashion decisions, you laugh at my non-fashionable decisions, and in the end we all just wish the snow would go away.

Ugh sounds like UGG. I made a funny.

Paying 400 bucks for boots is ridiculous. Especially suede ones that need more ridiculous amounts of protectant that doesn't work half the time so your suede boots get ruined. Also, they get ruined twice as fast if you tuck them into your sweat pants. Guys who wear dress shoes with sweat pants have their shoes ruin doubly as fast too. It's call the idiot factor of boot/shoe wearing.

I sometimes feel like petting those fuzzy boots. They're awesome like bunnies.

So what makes it okay when Western girls decide they should wear their Uggs with their skirts in the fall? It's a terrible fashion statement that is following us into all seasons.

"This is a sad display of what you people care about. How about world hunger, lack of funding to important organizations, disease?"

If you actually cared about coming to the school you would have more information on the Clubs and the issues that are dealt with on campus. There are plenty of Charitable groups that deal with all those issues. Do your research.

Materialistic Ugg Girl: "...originated as Australian slippers by the way"

Thanks. As it has been pointed out (SEVERAL) times now, I think we are all well aware that Uggs originated from some kind of Australian slipper. OUR point (as clearly, YOU STILL DON'T SEEM TO COMPREHEND) is that Uggs should have never been derived from the said Australian slipper in the first place.

I was making fun of you. It had been repeated dozens of times. This is obvious. I was making a point. You're all bitter fucking losers. Why are you even looking at our boots. Just walk on, go straight home and go fill up your fucking blogs with how much you hate "western whores". Spend your worthless lives degrading others for the sole purpose of making yourselves feel better. I am sure that if a pair of uggs wound up on your doorstep you would be proudly strutting around campus in them the very next day. We all know this is true. Go find something better to do with your time then make fun of girls for their fashion choices.

LMFAO at Materialistic UGG Bitch.

You were making fun of us? Really? Wow, sounded alot like bitter whining that your ugly boots aren't liked by the world, and that you've wasted 400$ roughly on a piece of garbage that really wouldn't even be usefull in whiping your ass with.

As for what I would do if a pair of UGGS showed up on my doorstep....I would most certainly NOT wear them. I believe I would resist my first instinct to burn them completly and instead desicrate then, and display them on a pole at the edge of my lawn as a warning to other UGGS to stay away, Possibly with a warning that UGG wearers will be shot on sight.

Lastly, I think your reference to our "worthless" lives is laughable considering we all know that in two to three years when Daddy's money is all gone we'll meet you at a local timmies where you'll be just another ugly hag taking our coffee orders badly for the rest of your life.

I come from a small town, was an athlete in highschool, love my friends and family. I bartend on the weekends,and like going to the gym. However, after reading the comments on this page, it seems that because of my choice in winter footwear i am deemed "idiotic", "ridiculous", "uncool", and oh gosh, even a "whore!" Hmmm....that's sad.

Okay, this entire conversation is absurd.

First, who cares what boots people are wearing? If somone wants to spend $400 on a pair of boots, that's their choice. Full stop. Do the people who wear UGGs tell everyone else how to dress? Not generally.

Second, the people at UWO, including UGG-wearing types, are no more shallow or self-centered than anywhere else. Quit being so bitter because you don't like somone else's sense of style. Quit judging and get to know people.

I'm sorry, I found that ridiculously funny.
Oh, and now my problem is becoming less and less with the actual boots as *most* of their owners...as "UGG girl" or whatever the hell her name is shows, *most* (of course, not all) of those with UGGs are prissy...proudly wearing them? Why? So that I can either pretend to be rich or to show off my money? Why are these boots such a big deal to you in the first place? Oh wait, I know why. To show your place in society:) Snobby? I think so. That's now my problem:)

Blah! I wasn't going to leave a post but I couldn't help myself! O.K. I'm not going to come off as a judgmental dick, but I must say that I do find the whole UGGS-CUM-GREY-DROOPY-JOGGING PANT style utterly hilarious! Now, to be more specific, what I find hilarious is this: undergrads are OBSESSED with individuality--especially these days where, due to major marketing campaigns from American super-companies, it is an all-out imperative to set yourself apart (regarding material accoutrements--yes, this is my qualification) from the collective. You know, your cell phone has to make you an "individual"; you need to "personalise" your ring tone; you have to be "hip" and "original" with your matching ibook and ipod (I could comment on this, but it'll take me forever and a day). Anyways, my point: in an age of hyper material-based individuality, why, oh why, are so many Western undergraduate girls looking EXACTLY THE SAME?! Man, do you know how many undergraduate girls I see with bloody grey jogging pants, uggs, and a MAC ibook under their arms? Get this: I saw four undergrads in a row on Richmond Row last Sunday, all who had tan-coloured bloody UGG boots and crappy-ass grey jogging pants.

Jogging pants. I remember crapping my pants in jogging pants when I was little. It was perfect 'cause no one could really tell that I had a "secret load" in 'em! Yeah, jogging pants. This I really don't understand insofar as it makes those who choose to wear jogging pants--with the requisite rim at the waist rolled down--look like they either shat themselves, or they're carrying a bloody loaf of whole wheat bread down there.

Hell, I'm off to eat some Pringles now!

wow reading all these stupid comments is 10 minutes of my life I will never get back. Lets face facts people, as comfortable as these pants may or may not be they are $400. How can you justify spending that much money on boots? I'm not saying they are ugly or anything, although I would never wear any, but if you want to wear them then by all means go ahead.

However, I would love someone to justify the money. Think about how far $400 would go feeding a poor family. I guess no one really cares. This in essence is the problem here at Western. Too many of the Western students do not take a second to think about the poverty in our fair city. They simply obsess over these stupid boots.

I challenge all of you to walk down dundas street at night and see the poverty around you. Go to the Arc Aid and volunteer some of your precious time. Then perhaps you will see how stupid this argument is.

If you don't like UGGS don't wear them. Period. No debates necessary ok. And if you do like UGGS for whatever reason fine. I'm sick and tired of every ones materialistic bitching... get over yourselves!

In my own personal opinion, it is idiotic to buy 400 dollar boots, regardless of fashion or comfort. I'm sure UGGs are fantastic and "worth every penny" but there are so many better things that money could be spent for. That being said, I have nothing against girls wearing uggs, and nothing against the uggs themselves. It just happens that when a girl is wearing uggs, it's USUALLY because she bought them herself and it USUALLY means that she spends money on other things needlessly. It's materialism and overconsumption that bothers me. But if I see a girl in uggs, i don't assume that she's an overspending, ignorant "daddy's girl" unless I get to know her well and see that that is actually the case. Innocent until proven guilty.
