@stubby: Beatus used the correct phrase. “sticking feet” is a common (though older) term used to describe anyone’s feet in socks.
Also: “Their stockings were hung by the chimney with care” refers to the “socks” worn by everyone in the household.
No, Stubby was talking about the “stretching a sock over your head” part of my comment, to which I say: some men’s dress socks are actually stretchy enough to become hair nets, especially if you cut the top part off. Still, it only drives the point that there’s no need for a picture of a guy’s face on the label.
hah! wouldn’t it be hilarious to open up a package and see ol’ foot-face’s goofy mug looking up at you? Prolly with his phone duct-taped to his ear. And a pair of men’s fashion socks crammed in his gob.
