BehindTheMedspeak: Ed Begley, Jr. is a fool — walking on his sloped roof in plastic clogs is a prescription for disaster

N_ljnljnhjlhn

For the past couple days I've had Planet Green (Direct TV channel 286) on in the background, just to see what it's all about.

Past episodes of his reality show "Living With Ed," featuring Begley and his wife Rachelle, have been re-airing seemingly non-stop.

That's all well and good but I must say that each time I see the goof up on his slanted roof in his slip-on clogs, diddling around with his array of solar panels and whatnot (top), I wince.

Why?

Because I've seen too many men (and women) his age (58) or younger brought into the ER and then the OR for pinning of their hip fractures.

If he insists on playing on the roof, he should at the very least get proper footwear.

Maybe one of his friends or fans will see this and pass the word.

No charge for this heads-up.

Yeah, he's going to fall right out of those clogs and right off of that roof. And you don't even have to be up on a slanted roof to mace yourself up for life with clog injuries. Sometime in my 30's I decided that life wouldn't be complete without getting myself a pair (of clogs), and falling about and spraining ankles and skinning knees didn't cure me of them. What DID, though, was when I went to a crowded movie with some friends, all fashionable in my socks and clogs, and walked right out of them without even realizing it while I was in the popcorn line. I was heading back to my seat when this young guy came trotting after me holding the clogs and going "Laaady! Laaady!" (just like Jerry Lewis -- aargh) "You left your shoes!" and a huge hysterical roar went up from the crowd.

No more clogs for me!
