What sort of parties are these people going to, anyway? Look at them all clustered around a guy with a change purse made out of – an argyle sock. It is a real, genuine sock too. Not a fake sock. That is good to know, when you are showing it off.
Plus I suppose you could buy two and wear them when you run out of clean laundry. Only the Standard Purse Frames might be a bit uncomfortable.
All your new friends will go “tee hee,” it looks like. Oh, tee hee! A Sock-O-Purse! What a “laff riot”! And a “Teen-Age fad sensation.”
And practical, too! Because you can – ahem – sock away the profits in it. Get it? Huh? Well, do you? Boy, that’s a riot, Alice. Tee hee!
