The institution of Silly Socks on Friday occurred in Africa in the early 90’s. It was intended to place some focus on the silly side of serious, or vice versa, the internal debate rages on. Ex Africa aliquid semper novus.
There is one rule for aspirant followers: On Fridays, wear silly socks.
It is a very simple but strict rule:
No monotones, with one exception, different colours on each foot is acceptable.
If one forgets, rectification must be immediate.
If no silly socks are to hand, go sockless as the rule only applies if socks are worn
The same silly socks on successive Fridays is seen as counter revolutionary and unacceptable
We stand for quirks and whimsy, serious looks at silliness and silly looks at seriousness.
Our current campaign is a global war against that yoke of uniformity, the neck tie.
There can be no logical explanation why people continue to tie strips of cloth tightly around their throats and then dangle them on their chests.
As you can imagine, this will require some fortitude because it is an ingrained habit and the Big Kahuna likes to be told how smart he looks, not how idiotic and antiquated … so take care. May I suggest baby steps?
As you can see, this is faintly revolutionary blog!
