The lottery is in full swing to see who will actually attempt to don these fancy footwear items. Long lines have been forming, people have been camping out on the streets for days, and the tourism bureau has had to hire extra workers to handle the flood of people coming into Tupelo just for the revelation of who will get to wear the shoes. Word on the street has it that the mayor, in his most important official capacity, will be drawing the name of the winning lottery ticket during a public meeting...and countless press outlets are preparing for a flood of news.
Due to the immense popularity of this event, however, all television and cable coverage has been blacked out. Therefore, people who receive their news via Blogger.com will be the only ones who learn the details of what occurs on this austere occasion.
Details continue to unfold, so stay tuned for further updates.
