A self-contained collection of tightly packed socks, ready for exploding into a safe and fun shower of soft, freshly-laundered, cuddly socks. Alternatively, use stinky old socks to give someone an unpleasant surprise.

       Croissant for the visual. Might make receiving socks for Christmas just a wee bit less mundane.

       Perhaps XSX was just retrofitting an idea to FJ's magnum opus.

       //but what about when the shoe is on the other foot and you have to travel somewhere sockless, and commando style?//
Well, there'd probably be shrinkage, for one.

       //It'll conclude with socks and other underwear being banned from all international and national air flights. //   

       Ban, schman. I learned today that airlines want us now to leave our checked baggage unlocked so they can rifle through everything freely. Pretty soon we'll all forget airplanes and walk everywhere again, like hobos, carrying our belongings on the ends of sticks.

       What's a stick? Who makes it? Where can I buy one?

       Actually, they literally grow on trees. Ain't that a kick in the pants?   

       As for the fake peanut brittle can - that sounds like a neat idea.

       Why not launch the sock bomb over your neighborhood and detonate it with something that has a kick – like C4. You could shower everyone with fresh clean cuddly socks to display your affection and generous nature. Great for the holidays!   

       No, I didn’t put any thought into how to protect the socks from the shockwave.

       Just for me? How sweet!

       Ah hah! Now I've gotten to the bottom of the brittle mystery... let's see what's in this can...
