High Strangeness: UFO Dress Code

UFO Dress Code

So, yesterday I posted about my upcoming appearance on Podcast UFO on the 9th, and how I was preparing some questions for the host to ask me. Turns out there's something else almost as important that I need to be thinking about: what to wear for a podcast!

Sure, I've got my MUFON shirts and cap, and a few items of Star Trek apparel -- any or all of that would set the right tone -- but until last night something really important seemed to be missing... Then my wife came home with a little shopping bag and I saw the light.

She had been at a seminar for the day, but had found time to explore a few shops between sessions, and in one shop she found the ultimate UFO fashion accessory...


UFO socks!!

Close Encounter of the Third Kind socks!!!

I love these socks so much I can hardly contain myself! As you can see, they portray a classic sombrero-style flying saucer with a row of portholes or lights around the main dome, and a beam of light shooting to the ground, which has apparently deposited one of its occupants on the earth. The EBE seems friendly; his four-fingered hand is raised in a welcoming wave, and he almost seems to be smiling (although that could be a trick of the weave) A backup saucer, meanwhile, hovers somewhat ominously in the sky...

I loved the socks even more when I looked at the tag:

My socks believe!!!!

But what do they believe?

I think my UFO socks are trying to tell me something, to tell you the truth. Because, when I flip them over, I see this:

What do you see?

Do you see two more saucers lurking in the distance?

Does it make you question the intentions of the EBE? Because it sure makes me wonder...

So, not only are they ridiculously cool-looking, my new UFO socks tell an intriguing story of a possible alien betrayal and invasion... A new standard of UFO fashion has been set.

Send those socks to Jaime asap! Obviously these socks were woven from the ancient Incans in Peru. And, you have the provenance of said ancient alien artifacts! beSox!

Oh man, you're right! These socks are The Smoking Gun (TM)

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that MUFON is not selling these socks to its members. They ought to have an exclusive!

I know! They really missed an opportunity here, but I bet the market is still wide open for alien boxers.
