Observer columnist Kevin McKenna was ribbing the leader of the Scottish Conservatives, Ruth Davidson, about the Tories auctioning a "shoe-shopping with Theresa May" experience, as revealed by BuzzFeed News.
McKenna then laid down the gauntlet and asked if Davidson would go shoe-shopping to raise money for childrens' charity Clyde Cash for Kids.
It didn't take long for Scotland's first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, to get in on it.
Although Davidson thinks Sturgeon might be slightly more into shoe-shopping than Davidson is.
Scottish Labour deputy leader Kezia Dugdale accepted the invitation.
Finally, Scottish Lib Dems leader Willie Rennie said he was happy to take part in his long-term hobby of shoe-shopping.
