    Merry Bloody Advent Booty Extravaganza - post your polished footwear

    Some of you may be familiar with the myth of St. Nuffl'clause. Some of you may not. The story of St. Nuffl'clause is an old one that is seldomly spoken of, and even when it is told, whoever tells it does so with a careful and dampened voice. It goes like this...

    Oh hell no, I am not going to be that stupid and put my life (and my soul) on the line by openly posting the full story on a public forum. I'll only say this much. Some witty coaches - young and old - are known to clean their boots from the dirt and gore that everyday's work at the sideline of the pitch ent(r)ails and polish them to the n-ths degree, they put them at their doorsteps when the night of the 6th of Merry Bloody Advent draws near and then they go to bed.

    It is said that many a coach who put effort in cleaning his boots has found a little something stuck in his footwear the next morning (some people report that newly bought/borrowed/stolen and good looking boots might also work).

    So. Who dares to challenge fate and post a picture (videos might also work) of hers/his/not-really-own-but-nearly-as-good-as boots here in this thread? Let's see if St. Nuffl'clause is a myth after all or if there is some truth in those stories about boots... and presents.




    Small remark: Of course the boots don't have to be your own (or even real boots/shoes), but they sure should be shiny. Also, you can leave your pictures here right now until midnight from the 5th to the 6th of December.

    In case this came across as simply weird or unclear, let me make the start. These are the boots I'll put on my doorstep for St. Nuffl'clause night.



    Obviously, these are not my real boots (or are they?), but as said above, that's not a problem. The idea is to gather some fun pictures and smart ideas for what people consider to be their "good" boots.

    Haha, very well done, both of you. And nicely polished too. :) Nuffl'clause will be pleased.

    Without wanting to bump my own thread, I imagined this to get a few more replies. Could anyone of those people who have not replied yet (so everyone apart from potatoe and lowkey) give me a quick feedback what (if any) the reason for this is? Do you feel the idea is too obscure or do you think it is lame? I had hoped to get at least a few more contributions, the 6th is almost at our doorstep (psst, don't be afraid to post silly pictures, that's kind of the point).

    Too wrapped up in my own rubbish this past weekend to go hunting for shoe images on the internets, sorry. I do intend to contribute.

    The real question is: Are these your legs too?

    @everyone else: Thanks for the clarification, I probably shouldn't have made this into a community-has-to-contribute and more into contribute-to-the-community event. I am happy about every reply.

    I'll believe you after I've seen it with my own eyes. Get polishing!

    As others have said, I've been crazy busy with work this past week, and had to find time to do my own contribution. Plus, yeah, this was a little obscure and I was trying to think of something witty for it and failing.

    I'll throw something in here when I get back from work today.
    Started writing a blog for video games, roleplaying, game mechanics, and AARs.
