Socks! Socks! Socks!

Would you trust a man who wears socks like this?

Plenty more socks where these came from, in the latest Will Type For Food periodically periodical periodical.

Yes, that's right - I've got a new zine out! The Coburg Sock Lovers Quarterly, containing the best and the worst (but mostly the worst) of this blog, plus with bonus crap, including a Sock Crossword, a page of Sock Facts, the Sock of the Month, an opinion column by a radish, and a Nazi Gerbil. Coming soon, to a post office box near you!

Think you might be interested in this publication? Write to me, at

Alternatively, you could just run screaming for the hills. Whatever makes you happy...

Sock, almighty, Lord.

My copy of The Coburg Sock Lovers Quarterly has arrived, just in the nick of time for Melbourne Cup.

I have carefully removed and discarded the staples, which were holding the materials in place, and have crocheted one and a quarter socks.

As you would have deduced already, I will need to amputate three quarters of one of my feet to make the new socks work for me.

All in all, I'm delighted with The Coburg Sock Lovers Quarterly.

Can't wait for the gloves edition!

Fantastic news! The Holy Word of the Sock spreads!

You might find this odd or intriguing : came across it years ago and am thinking of starting 'sslfot' or striped sock on left foot on Thursday.... holes welcome but not encouraged.

A most eccentric and entertaining link - I shall have to bookmark it, or whatever it is the cool kids do. Thank you.

I'm also delighted with The Coburg Sock Lovers Quarterly.

But I can't for the life of me understand how you failed to address that most pressing of sock fashion crimes: socks with sandals!

Oh, fantastic news. Thanks, &D. Maybe a focus on the sock-and-sandal horror will have to wait for another edition...
