IN CERTAIN STATES, THIS IS PRACTICALLY FORMAL ATTIRE

"It was very, um, not comfortable seeing that," said the resident, Anna Desius, who had company over at the time. "He walked directly in between us [buck] naked, coming through the front door." The man had "nothing but socks" on, she said.

Honey Boo-Boo, the pay-per-view event?

Disclaimer: Even the thought of that makes me feel a little ill. But, should a network associate be reading this, that concept is *my* idea, and you can contact me for licensing rights via my legal team of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.

You know what would be a great name for a rock band?

Buck Naked & Nothing But Socks

Of course, this did happen in Florida where casual is the rule.

Judge: "What do you have to say about 'sushing' them?"

Patrick James: "If I may set the record straight Judge, could you show a little consideration for the victims in this case and keep it down to a whisper."

Is our newspaper editors learning? I don't blame Madame Desius for her mistake, she was shaken up by seeing a man clothed only in socks enter her house, so proper English usage was probably not her first concern. Likewise the writer I am willing to forgive, Madame Pesantes could easily have been thrown by the witness's words and mimicked them unconsciously. The editor however, it is their job to catch this sort of mistake. Naked is an all-or-nothing state, and one can no more be almost completely naked than one can be almost completely pregnant.

The one that makes me nuts, max, is "nearly unique."

Jeff, Max - "very unique" - arrrgg!

It's not every day you get a personal visit from Seymour Hair.

I'll see your "very unique" and raise you a "comprised of".

There he goes he was naked as a jay bird. The wind was airing everything out. What kind of socks was he wearing? He could of done a commercial for socks.

In Key West, this would be classified as "Business Casual".
