Why are Ruby Slippers so Popular?

Why are Ruby Slippers so Popular?
Movie lovers familiar with The Wizard of Oz and even those not so familiar will probably recognize the familiar line, "There's no place like home, there's no place like home" which Dorothy cries out as she clicks her heels together three times and wishes to go home. Yesterday on Twitter, I noticed that Dorothy's wishing with the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz is actually so famous that people have their own variations on the theme like:

"I don't want to do laundry today... I don't wanna! I don't wanna! I don't wanna!"

"I'm not sick, I'm not Sick, I'm NOT Sick. *Clicks ruby slippers.* Damn. It didn't work. Maybe they only bring people to Kansas."

"Clicking ruby slippers together saying, "house be clean, house be clean, house be clean."

You might also recognize the Wicked Witch at work when she says,

"Do what you like with the others, but I want her alive and unharmed! They'll give you no trouble, I promise you that. I've sent a little insect on ahead to take the fight out of them! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Take special care of those ruby slippers – I want those most of all! Now fly – fly! Fly! Fly! Fly!"

Or when she says, "When I gain those ruby slippers, my power will be the greatest in Oz!"

If you are a big Wizard of Oz fan and you think you need a pair of ruby slippers, I discovered that you do not have to spend a bundle.  You can buy an ordinary pair of red pumps or you can buy a pair of shoes specifically designed to be reminiscent of Dorothy's red slippers. If you want to spend more, you can even find some designer Jimmy Choo red pumps that would do the job. Check out eBay's Jimmy Choo red pumps by clicking here. However, there are ruby slippers available in all sorts of styles from flats to heels, sparkling or not and in all price ranges.  Amazon carries a large line of  ruby slippers which you can visit by clicking right here.

See you
at the movies!

The Jimmy Choo pumps here were originally sold by eBay seller lestrada2005. It appears that store has since been closed.
