Sawx Below, Socks Here

What's the deal with Grape Nuts? You open it up, no grape, no nuts. And for real this time, what's the deal with people wanting famous people's socks? I'm baffled:

"Bids for a pair of unwashed socks worn by rocker Bryan Adams have so far reached a staggering £530. The black Armani socks he wore during a Children in Need gig in Wrexham were placed on eBay to raise much-needed money for a local hospice. The site has received 1,024 hits and 28 people have made bids, taking the socks from a £25 starting price to £530."

"WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - Smelly socks worn by Ed Harris during the filming of "Empire Falls" were among the treasures snatched up by fans during a weekend sale of props and costumes from the HBO movie. On Saturday, about 300 people bought a variety of items used by Harris, Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward and Helen Hunt during last year's filming in the Waterville-Skowhegan area."

Seriously, even if you're into smelly socks or have a foot fetish, which is cool no doubt, what's the appeal of Bryan Adams and Ed Harris? And for Bryan Adams, that's more than $1,000 US dollars! I don't see how that's any different from the time I spent a grand on Annie Lennox's brassiere. Then I sang: "Purchas-ing, purchas-ing, Annie's braaaaa, doo da doo doo oooooooo-oooo-ooooo" all fuckin' night long.

May I assist you with your sock change?

Rumor has it that the appeal of Ed Harris lies north of the sock region. Unless you're a Red Hot Chili Pepper.
