Cheap at half the price

By mrswoolybill
OK does anyone else find this funny, or it it just me? I have never previously considered the market for single socks, although the washing machine provides us with quite a few examples.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Excellent ... it's a wonder that the marketing people didn't see what they were doing. Of course they might have known exactly and were expecting something just like this!

Or for people who accept that they will always find themselves wearing odd socks, so might as well plan for it?

Made me laugh....Brilliant observation Moira.
One the other hand our grandson seems to have several odd socks, maybe he didn't take up the offer.

Wonderful, was this an enterprise of Dougal in Father Ted? I reckon the marketers were well aware of what they were doing 🙂

"Cheap At Half The Price" ... always strikes me as meaning "Expensive Normally"

So which one's the cheapest; the right or the left?
Well, I do like to know what I'm paying, Moira.

Great capture, made me smile, a local shoe shop was advertising buy one get one half price, I did ask if it was for pairs or single shoes!

Nice to be able to Mix and Match, Two left, two right or one of each? Smile.
Happy Silly Sunday Moira.

It's a particularly relevant offer for unipedes, as Pete and Dud put it...

So what happens when the offer finishes? Do we have to pay for two socks!

Is it a left or right footed sock, or do they get paired up at the till? Good observation, or is that the ploy to get you to buy?

The first bit of Sunday Silliness I've seen today! 😁 I suppose selling single socks would suit a one-legged man... 👍

Many moons ago I was enticed to go into the Ladies underwear department of Debenhams, while trying my best not to look or feel awkward I spotted a rack of what was labelled invisible pants, the schoolboy in me so wanted to remove the garments and just leave the hangers behind on the peg but, alas, swmbo dragged me out before I could do the deed. Sad
