Creative Reuse of Worn Out or Mismatched Socks

There are many jokes about how washing machines or dryers eat socks, and many Youtube videos about their fate. If you have worn out or unmatched socks – this is the podcast for you! Thanks to Alexis Sullivan for the listener question.

You can listen to my podcast episode about creative reuse of socks in this YouTube video. It originally aired in February 2017.

Missing Sock Jokes

  • Dryer Lint: the cremated remains of missing socks
  • Socks entering a dryer in pairs – the lead sock says “Okay everyone, remember the buddy system!”
  • Two socks at a bar having drinks and one says “No kidding! I’m recently single too!”
  • A group of people in purgatory see piles of socks, and they say “at least we know where all the missing socks from the dryer went.” (Wiley Ink)
  • “I’m convinced that every time I lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as an extra Tupperware lid.”
