Socks Capitals Worlds Apart
To bypass registration
Alabama vs China in a world sock domination smackdown.
12 years ago
Woah! I'm FROM Ft. Payne. Well, just outside of it, but still, no one ever believed me when I told them it was the "Sock Capital"....as absurd (and in some ways as sad) as it is.
Gee, I wonder who's going to win that one.
The sock smackdown winner will be the one who can sell me a dozen socks cheaper than walledmart, direct to zip 93406. "Both make cushion socks that sell at stores such as Wal-Mart for $3.76 for five pairs" Do i hear $3.25? Naturally this will bypass everyone except fedx/ups and the credit card co's, who will win no matter what. For the record i don't like walledmart, but socks are good (organic socks are even better).
The world must have more socks, due to all the folk's feet in it nowadays.
Does anyone really price shop for socks? I mean, if I need socks, then the next time I see socks I buy them... Mesmer, would you really not buy socks at 3.76 if you knew you could get them for 3.25 somewhere else? (I know you were being tounge in cheek, but I wonder at what point price ceases to become an issue?)
I would love to live in a world with neither socks, nor shoes. Free your feet!
"would you really not buy socks at 3.76 if you knew you could get them for 3.25 somewhere else?" no, the socks were just a metaphor. Such is the race to the bottom, the cheapest socks in the marketplace at the expense of Ft. Payne and places like it. Just wait till the other clusters start cranking out $250 laptops and 7k$ compact cars.
