I think that's pretty clear, but to summarize - having a schticky sock is cool if it's funny and not whipped out every ten seconds for cheap laughs. But this one, erm. Yeah, it sucks.

It's too goddam easy to post to MetaTalk. There should be a notice that comes up when you try to post that says "Do you really want to do this? Because if you're just farting around, a boxing glove will emerge from the computer and punch your lights out."

SassHat, I think your sock puppet is just great...but somewhat short, just like Tom Cruise. Does your sock puppet's ex-wife have a large and excellent ass, just like Penelope Cruze?

In depraved communities sockpuppets face a miserable and uncertain future - simply because they're a second account for making jokey comments. Dirty, unsafe thoughts, insufficient judgement and a lack of proper hygiene can leave them vulnerable to disease and disablement. With no chance of meet ups, they have little opportunity to break free of Ron Paul jokes and experience a better life.

But, for the price of a of a cup of coffee a day, you too can sponsor your own sockpuppet. By becoming a sockpuppet sponsor, you can change one needy sockpuppet's life for the better. Your five dollar donation helps ensure that your sockpuppet receives a slight laugh at 3:48am by alcoholics and insomniacs, encourages mathowie's maniacal, uncontrollable egoism and ensures the entire community benefits from projects that grow infrastructure to control the massive influx of idiocy.

Sponsoring a sockpuppet is one of the most powerful giving experiences you'll ever have outside of a public restroom -- please join us today.

All good sockpuppets have something in common: you never know what's inside. It's like your birthday every time you see one post! And while some mean people might come to your birthday, sometimes you get something spectacular.

Like me, for instance. I'm filled with love. (beams)

I started life as a sockpuppet, but then one day the hand that stuffed itself into my backside and brought me to life decided to stay there for good. I like to think it's because I provide such a warm and cozy environment for a hand such as mine, but it may just be that it likes to watch me squirm. And how!

As far as things go, sockpuppets are about the least offensive thing I can think of. Some are funny, some (as you point out) are not. Big deal!

Your calling out 3 one line comments spread out over six days?

Really?

I mean, it's not like it's even offensive or noticeable. It's just noise, and not even loud noise at that.

Is that what I been doing wrong all these years? I never got a second account to use for making jokey, obnoxious comments. I just use this account. The sock puppets I have at home are actual socks, except for the puppets that aren't socks.

Should I get me a second account now? Or is it six years too late? How does one go about doing that?

Because that's what happens when sock puppets go bad. 3 comments in a week is nothing.

True story: when I was about two and a half years old, I had a sock puppet in the shape of a dog which, in a display of precocious lyricism, I named Dog. When I was feeling angry, I would ball up my little fist inside Dog's mouth and use him to hit grownups. I would then try, unsuccessfully, to escape culpability by explaining that "I like you, but DOG doesn't like you!"
