Nonsense is Nonsense: Of Rubber Soles and Tzni'us

I just saw this insanity.* I only have two comments, not my own:

'Some things aren't Assur because they're Assur. They're assur because they're stupid and it's Assur to be stupid.'
----Rabbi Dr. Joseph B. Soloveitchik זצ"ל
די גרעסטע מצוה איז ניט צו זיין קיין נאר.
הרה"ח ר' הירש יוסף כהנסון זצ"ל (סבא רבא של אשתי
[* I am referring to the Psak. Parshablog's discussion was interesting.]

To be fair, I don't think it was a p'sak. It was a misguided desperate mother's request for her son's well being.

I wish that were true. Check out the comments at the bottom of the Parshablog posting.
