    Stupid question

    I do not speak english very well and I was wondering if you guys thing that if I wear green socks today at work I will look more english speaking or if I am smarter just to stick with my normal tan socks.

    Thanks for your input,
    Jeff

    Stupid answer

    Unfortunately, a lot of people in North America don't speak (or spell) English very well either. Maybe you should ask them what color socks they wear, and avoid that color. See if that helps.

    try wearing no socks and see what happens. Maybe socks drain knowledge of languages from your brain?
    Wouldn't be the only way in which they're evil inventions

    It seems to interfere with your ability to type.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Tan? Green? Throw them both and where black socks. A black suit. White shirt with a black tie. Black glasses and finally a red rose. And a uzi. Then people at work won't dare to think anything at all

    Given the current tendency for idiots to walk into just about every public place and open fire I really don't find this funny at all.
