First outbreak of flip flops spotted in Wales

Wales has seen its first outbreak of flip flops this year.

Several yellow, gnarly toes were spotted in coastal areas as well as some city locations.

A spokeswoman for the Welsh Government told WalesOnCraic:

“We’ve been on high alert for this since last week and have put all precautions into place to try and stem the tide of this kind of outbreak. We have spotters all over the country and with the rise in temperature this week, it’s been inevitable that we’d get a few calls. So far, flip flops seem to be mainly confined to coastal areas but we did have a few reports of sightings in city centres. We have put our Flip Flop Action teams on standby to arrest any wearers and to warn them that they are committing a public disorder offence if caught.”

Flip flops are usually associated with unsightly toes, especially among the male population.

The footwear was invented by French shoe-maker Philippe Fillop.
