Argyle and deceit

Once in a while, one of those pesky “e-cards” that clutter up Facebook elicits a small chuckle from this quarter. This one, though, has definite neologism, or at least euphemism, potential:

E-card: A dyslexic hooker just offered to cook my socks for $40

(Found at Kat’s Kozy Korner.)

    Just yesterday a meme made rounds on Russian blogs: “American in Russian language class: “Sock in Russian sounds is No Sock?!”

    Considering that one of the nicknames for a person who crochets is a “hooker” (yes, said with all the eye-rolling “humor” intended), and that socks CAN be crocheted….that’s not all that far off, I suppose.

    Though I personally prefer “monkey fighters” if I’m fake-cursing.
