A Debt of Gratitude

This photo points out to us the debt of gratitude we owe to whoever it was who invented elastic and to the person who had the bright idea to incorporate it into socks.

Strange Characters

The four guys on the left look like characters in a silent film comedy. Guy with the thick eyebrows looks like a Marx brother, third guy looks like he's just seriously posing for the photo, second and fourth guys look like they're mocking third guy's pose.

Mister X has rather nice calves, but they look so silly under those socks and suspenders.

["Garters." - Dave]
