Guest Post: Exegesis on the Flip Flop by Hannah Steadman

Have you ever wondered where flip-flops come from? In ancient times, everyone wore flip-flops, or as they called them, sandals. But the ancient people grew tired of the flip-flopping so they attached strings to wrap around their ankles so the flop would stop flipping.

So why now in the modern era have we regressed to the flip-flopping? And what about the flip-flops that don’t flip-flop? My friend’s flip-flops go whip-whop. Mine go squeak-squawk. What is in the name? Why not call them flop-flips? By studying this common flat thing with two straps, I believe I could build a whole thesis on how the American civilization is regressing and not progressing. Yes, an exegesis is in order.

I guess the only thing I have left to say is: does your flip-flop flop-flip, squeak-squawk, or whip-whop? (Dr. Seuss anyone?)
