Socks For Africa

Collect many thousands of leftover / orphaned / cheap socks and send them to remote villages in Africa, without explanation.

Just another example of confusing, inscrutable, misguided international largesse.

       Somebody would weave them into shelters or animal traps.

       They'd know. And then they would worship them.

       I'm sure they would, [normzone]. I really like the wind generator a teenaged boy made from a bicycle and a few large tin cans.

       Darn apartheid!   

       So we're charitably donating billions of socks to a continent that can be in part identified by the notable portion of its inhabitants who lack shoes?

       I think my socks already disappear to there.
