Eddie Izzard Will Not Be Able to Wear Heels For A Bit

_46380778_izzard_run_uk_466map.gif
Comedian Eddie Izzard is perhaps one of the funniest people on this or any other planet. He’s brilliant.

The self-proclaimed Executive Transvestite just ran 43 marathons in 51 days. And, yes, we checked “marathon” in Great Britain is still 26.2 miles. So, for some reason (charity) Izzard decided to do this and finished and wow…we have the same respect/horror for him as for someone who shoots drugs into an abscess.

But here’s the thing, dude who likes to dress like a lady, good luck wearing high-heeled shoes. Your humble bumble editor here runs marathons and you’ll never see us in anything other than Rachel Maddow sneakers and yes, even to weddings and Blogger Proms.
