Leftie shoes

Noticed that the police in southern Sweden have apprehended international thieves specializing in stealing left shoes. Apparently they intended to go to Denmark and steal the equivalent right shoes.

They must be Russians, or at least of Eastern European background. One of the legacies of the Great potentate Josef Stalin and his communist regime was the introduction of weight quota comes to production. This, among other things, meant that some factories only produced left shoes and often of the larger size because that made it easier to fulfill their assignment. I would guess something like that may trigger thievery of this kind.

But left shoes…? Come on… Not even thieves have standards anymore…
