However, they've been spotted on feet (and in stores) along the Riviera, so if you're headed that way, you'll be fine.

A young woman waits demurely in a stark room. Before her on a table sit scissors and one half of a pair of Crocs. For the next two minutes and 35 seconds, as a jaunty Cole Porter score plays, she takes scissors to shoe, shredding the rubbery yellow thing into sad little slivers. The slivers she pulverizes in a blender. A smile never leaves her face. The dismemberment, enjoyed by more then 60,000 people on YouTube, comes compliments of the folks behind Ihatecrocs.com, an Internet site dedicated to the elimination of Crocs and those who think that their excuses for wearing them are viable.

ACCIDENTS Shoes may cause escalator injuries At rail stations and shopping malls around the world, reports are popping up of people, particularly young children, getting their toes caught in escalators. The one common theme seems to be the clunky soft-soled clogs known by the name of the most popular brand, Crocs. The Washington Metro subway system has even posted ads warning riders about wearing such shoes on its moving stairways. The ads feature a photo of a crocodile, though they don't mention Crocs by name.

Hullo, Zeeba Neighba ... The characters of the daily comics have distinct voices inside our heads. Bucky Katt from Get Fuzzy has a Boston accent. Hagar the Horrible sounds like Ralph Kramden. The Pattersons of For Better or For Worse sound like Canadians, if they lived in Wisconsin. And then, there are the crocodiles. The dimwitted, zebracidal crocs from Stephan Pastis' Pearls Before Swine tie us in linguistic knots. What's that accent? Brooklyn? Cajun? Southern? "Hullo, zeeba neighba.

Does Steve Irwin have a death wish? There doesn't seem to be any other explanation for why someone would put himself directly in the path of the most dangerous critters on the planet. But encounters with hissing rattlers and spitting cobras, races with flesh-eating Komodo dragons and rampaging feral pigs, and up-close and personal moments with mambas, sharks and, of course, crocodiles are just another day at the office for Irwin -- known to millions of fans worldwide as TV's "Crocodile Hunter."
