Ah, now this is the PA I know and love, taking the nation’s — nay, the world’s — Ugg problem into their own hands. In this moment, I am proud to call you my native state.
A Pennsylvania middle school has officially banned “outdoor, open top” boots from their student’s fashion repertoire. Of course, the ban isn’t for stylistic reasons — according to administrators at the school, students were hiding their cellphones in the top part of their boots, amidst all that fur. Valid idea, girls, but you’ve been caught. Thank you, universe.
Now, I own a pair of Uggs, so really, I can’t bemoan their existence. However, I wear them exclusively when it’s negative 20 degrees and the only way my feet will be warm is if I encase them in 5 pounds of sheep fur. They’re warm. They’re comfy. I’ll admit it. What I hate, though, is when girls decide to wear them under the most unintelligent circumstances — i.e. with skirts, with shorts, when they go out or when it’s 55 degrees. I have an adverse physical reaction to it. And usually, I stare them down in really aggressive, accusatory way that I feel, in that moment, will be constructive way to deter them from ever wearing their Uggs again. I’d like to think it works.

For your viewing pleasure, I’ve included a cornucopia of the worst of the worst Ugg offenders (including some other furry counterparts). Try to stay calm.
