You would think if they called something a sock, youâ€™d be able to wear it on your feet, but this was not the case with Apple iPod Socks, unless youâ€™re a baby or a midget.
I wanted to put one on a babyâ€™s foot, but I couldnâ€™t get my hands on a baby.
Let me tell you, itâ€™s hard to find at the last minute a baby to use as a test subject. Even with $50,000 through the Black Market, our sources said it wouldâ€™ve taken at least a couple of days.
The iPod Socks come in a six-pack, with each box containing a gray, pink, blue, green, purple, and orange two-toned sock. They are supposed to be used as cases for the popular iPod.
Being a manly man, I will not be caught using the pink iPod Sock. I donâ€™t care if pink is the new black. I had a horrible experience with wearing the color pink.
The last time I wore pink was to a junior prom. My date wore a pink and white dress and wanted to match, so she
suggested made me wear a white tuxedo with a pink tie and cummerbund. I can’t believe I did that just so I could go to the junior prom as a sophomore.
When we went to the prom, it turned out that I was the ONLY guy in a white tuxedo. The only way I couldâ€™ve stood out more was if I wore a pink and white top hat with a neon sign that said, â€œLook at me! I’M LAME.â€
The iPod Sock fits nicely over my third generation iPod, which will keep it nice and warm during these cold winter months. However, when Iâ€™m using an iPod Sock I donâ€™t have access to the controls, which is a problem when I desperately donâ€™t want to listen to my ex-girlfriendâ€™s Backstreet Boys and New Age music that Iâ€™m too lazy to remove from my iTunes library.
Despite making wonderful iPod warmers, the iPod Socks are one-dimensional. I canâ€™t use them as actual socks on my feet, but I did try them on other body parts to see if they would fit and be able to keep those body parts warm.
Fingersâ€¦Four of them.
Umâ€¦Heh, hehâ€¦Need a MUCH bigger sock for that.
Okay, not really.
