RIP Peoples' feet.

My camera was pointed at my pointy toes, but it still deserved to die
we better watch it or Tony'll be taking the axe to this thread too!
Um that second socktopus looks like it used waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much Botox!!
He practically asked for it . He wanted us to 'put a sock in it', and this is an entirely appropriate response. Ceph content. Socks.
BTW, I noticed this was written in the Forum Index:
Now ! really want to make socktapuses! I think I saw grey toe-socks at Whalemart.... I will put them on my feet and no one will say anything cause they are all used to me by now. 8)
I believe those last two Socktopuses are variations on the basic Red-Heeled Sock Monkey (genus and species unknown). You can find the directions, among other places, at this URL:
Hold the presses -- I just found THE ACTUAL SOCKTOPUS INSTRUCTIONS!!!
I always thought they looked a little like a subspecies of Howler monkey. Alouatta seniculus woolsockius, maybe?
This is Socktopus canadensis.
(yes, I actually have several more important things to do)
Peoples' feet shall live again! MWAHAHAHAHAAA!
Um et al,
If you have a cat, you can make a special socktopus for the little bounder. Find an old sock, preferably one on the foot of someone taking a nap. Fill the toe with catnip and tie a knot in the sock. Then, use scissors or a bowie knife to cut the tube behind the knot into strips. Voila! A mind-altering socktopus for Mr. Kitty. For advanced fun, read aloud from Victor Hugo's "Les Travailleurs de la Mer" as Mr. Kitty and the socktopus re-enact Gillatt's encounter with the devilfish.
Is there any other use for a (c/K)at, other than as an instrument of torture and/or mayhem?
Whoa... déjà vu...
Hmmmmmm. I enjoyed reading 'feet' simply because I have to deal with cephs on a 24/7 basis - it offered me a bit of light relief - a bit like my constantly referring to my Neil D poster; ya see, I don't have a lot of time to consider many things, but I squeeze it in there for Neil and I squeezed (past tense ... RIP indeed) it in for feet.
The thread would have died in due course ... most do ... but this one seemed to show no signs of slowing down (in fact it was cranking up).
Reminds me of that film 'Misery', where Cathy Bates (sp?) hobbles that poor fellow (James Caan?) when strapped in bed.
There's no dissention in the ranks ... we just gotta hobble on
