Black Friday Consumer Shilling Event or "I don't need no steenkin ugg boots"

Readers! I have no idea why, but a kindly, talented purveyor of UGG boots from Down Under, has got it into her head that Tex[t]-Mex Galleryblog readers are clamoring to adorn their feet in what she's got to offer! In her own words:

Just in time for Winter, Whoogaboots are offering readers of the Tex[t]-Mex Gallerblog a $20 gift code toward the purchase of their thermofleece ugg boots! Simply enter: 4TEXTMEX into the gift card section of their shopping cart for $20 credit on any item.

If any sales of these peculiar foot garb actually sell (and I know they are popular here on the SDSU campus), I vow to wear a pair to lecture in during the Spring semester!

[pictured above, Alfonso "no steenkin badges" Bedoya from John Huston's amazing Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), wearing a pair of posh Whoogaboots while menacing Humphrey Bogart--there's a cool blog posting on the movie here that also includes "Mexican" avatar Bedoya's infamous lines.]
