Braking the rules: Socks with Sandals?

Once an abhorred practice performed only by anti-social dorks, it has become the hottest fashion item for the 2006 winter season; but as Oscar Wilde once said, “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Time would tell how horribly right he was.

Everyone who’s anyone knows that socks should be worn with shoes, and only barefeet should be slipped into sandals. Yet, in our jet-powered Digital Age of Information and Free Junk lying everywhere, there are still those few, backwards wackjobs who insist on going through the extra trouble of rummaging through their sock drawer to find their most unsightly plaid socks, put on those socks, and then put on their sandals and therefore are considered as geeks by the government.
