Dogs Don't Like Socks

I don't care what Paris Hilton says. Dogs do not like socks. Maybe they would if someone took the time to explain to our canine friends the benefits of regular sock use. Until that day, don't expect much gratitude while you wrestle with your pet to get socks on each of its four legs, just to have it act like its having a seizure trying to get them off.

So next time you think it would be cute to dress up your dog, remember this post. They don't like socks, and if you do it anyways they won't like you.

Sock Busters

If their's a sock stealing thief in your neighborhood who you gonna call?

Sock Busters.

Don't laugh, it's true. Sock Busters are a valuable group to have in any community that is plagued by sock stealing of the single or paired nature. Socks in a group are more prone to ill advised behavior than a lone sock. Watch out for large sock gatherings in dark places or unsecured sock stops.

Sloby Milosy

I'm not a fan of old Slobo, but I have seen him sport some very nice pairs of socks. I do not beleive he is a thorlo or wigwam man, but he is no slouch when it comes to sock selection. Ofcourse was would be the proper tense when talking about old Slob. RIP Sloby and thanks for the sock memories.

Wake up and smell the Socks...

A good foot and shoe deoderizer can work wonders for a funky foot. I recomend Dr. Scholls for fast results. Socks, HDTV and sleeping pills can combine to make one hell of an anti foot odor combo.

Socks Sock and more Socks

I recently had a discussion with a gentleman in a sportsman's store. He kept insisting that his socks were not doing an adequate job keeping his feet dry. He told me that he thought he should just stop wearing socks altogether when he went hiking. I promptly explained to this confused individual that forgoing socks would be a lamentable mistake. While it may seem counter-intuitive that adding another layer would keep you cooler, that is in fact the truth. You just have to wear the right kind of socks. You see socks are not all alike. Beyond the fact that some socks are of a higher quality than others, certain socks are for certain purposes or situations. You wouldn't wear a raincoat to combat a freezing day with heavy snowfall would you? Of course not, you would wear a thick jacket that protected you from the cold weather. Similiarly, you should wear the appropriate sock to match your chosen activity. By abiding this common sense rule, you will find that there are socks tailored for these specific activities and that they do a better job than a one size fits all approach.

As for our confused friend in the store, I pointed him in the direction of some excellent hiking socks that wick away moisture and keep your feet dry. He thanked me and was on his way eager to try out his new socks.

You may be asking yourself "how can I figure out which socks are right for me and all my different activities"? Not to worry! Just keep coming back to Sock Talk and in no time you'll have it all figured out.

The sock knowledge is strong within you... .
