Being a pragmatic type of person I would socks are great.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Also, you can make puppets out of them which makes them all the more useful.

I'm avoiding learning anatomy just now!

Graham Norton famously said on radio: "socks is famously the name of bill clinton's cat, and "im reliably informed" that its the only pussy in the white house that hillary doesn't mind bill, stroking"

I don't care about socks anymore, I'm wearing black ones and as far as I'm concerned they rock.

It was medics formal hall (think gowns and dinner suits) tonight and God knows what I've had to drink. I know I've had at least 1 1/2 bottles of wine and 2 vodkas and something.

Has anyone heard of "pennying" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennying.

Well now you have. It's very funny.

Lol. The following is quite funny:

"Professor Stephen Hawking is not to be pennied. This is not actually a rule, but is now widely accepted after two Robinson College students attending a Caius College formal hall were fined in excess of £50 and given a lifelong ban from the college for pennying his dessert."

Yea, socks. I have white socks on just now.

Ally, I was just about to say the same thing about the Steven Hawking prank, funny stuff! laugh.gif biggrin.gif


At Edinburgh "yee-hah" seems to be the popular drinking game. The rules we were going by on Wednesday night were more complex than those in the Wiki article though, and I think it's fair to say I need some more practice!

Remember kids, never play with white socks on, hold your drink in your right hand, or point with your fingers (elbows only)!
