Posted:I think you are beyond hope at this point... sorry about that.

the thing is, aliens collect socks for a variety of puposes - collecting gentic samples for cloning of human bodies so they can infiltrate our society after transferring their conciousness to the clone (usually only requires one sock), powering their cloaking shields, which run off foot stank (so if they were dirty, then this might be why they took yours), or to keep their pasty little feet warm.

Anyway, Aliens have little or no concept as to the human fondness for their favorite pair of socks, so they are bound to snag whatever is handiest or suits their needs the best.

Sorry about your loss.

I swear the sock rebellion had begun this morning, I woke up to find no socks, zero. Unfortunately I then looked in the dirty linen basket and there they all were.

Chorus!

Oh gay sock, oh gay sock, where have you gone?
Has some jealous person flushed you down the john?
Oh gay sock if you return, I will still love you,
Even though you're all smelly and covered in poo

Anyone care to have a stab at writing verse 1? I have to go and do some work! Only 10 mins till home time - eeek!! spank slaps for me


Come faeries, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.

Posted:THE SEARCH CONTINUES

my worries and doubts are now reaching epidemic proportions!! eek

i dont know what to do confused

if aliens have them then im afraid that a universal peace is not possible. outright war must be waged ntill they are returned. plus the idea of alien pocking around in my most private of things is not one i wish to contemplate...

i took the saged advice and asked jeeves. he told me they could be found on ebay!!! this is almost more worrying, someone has found them and is trying to flog them!!!

i checked ebay and they arent there yet, i beg everyone to keep an eye out.

i do not believe my socks rebbeled against me... i use foot powder and everything, they even got washed sometimes!!!

i will not give up

i will have them again oh yes..... mad

Socks With Explosive Residue Discovered

Sat Dec 6,12:42 AM ET Add U.S. National - AP to My Yahoo!





By LESLIE MILLER, Associated Press Writer



WASHINGTON - The discovery of a pair of stretched-out socks with traces of explosives in them has prompted a government warning that al-Qaida may still be planning to use personal items to blow up a plane, according to the Homeland Security Department.



The bulletin was issued Wednesday to state and local officials, as well as federal transportation officials, said Homeland Security Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse.



The FBI (news - web sites) also issued a circular on the subject, he said.



Roehrkasse said there is no specific intelligence information indicating the terrorist group has a plot to blow up an aircraft using socks or other personal belongings.



He declined to say where the suspicious socks were discovered, but did describe them as " large, rainbow patterned, made of wool, and very gay-looking."



But ABC News, citing an anonymous source, reported Friday that the socks were seized by British authorities in Gloucester, England, during the arrest of Sajid Badat.



Badat was arrested recenty and charged with conspiring in an explosives plot with shoe bomber Richard Reid, who is serving a life sentence for attempting to bomb an airliner in December 2001.



Roehrkasse said the bulletin issued by Homeland Security "indicated al-Qaida operatives continue to display an interest in modifying personal items for potential use as improvised explosive devices, and continue to desire to target aviation."



Transportation Security Administration screeners have already been asked to be extra alert during the holiday season, Roehrkasse said.



He said it's not known specifically what the socks may have been used for, or whether the explosive residue came from a floor or a shoe or were intended for use on someone's body.
