I Won!

Recently, I entered a contest to name a Wacky Sockit. The winner would receive the Wacky Sockit, along with a little story written about the creature using it's new name. The Wacky Sockits are made by my friend Pat, and are sold at her etsy store

Here is a picture of Harold "The Tongue" Beekman, a former "heavy" in the Wacky Sockits mob:

Bud, looking like he's melting in the sun as he holds Harold:

Ginger, showing off Harold's fine form:

Harold's story, as written by my friend, Pat, goes like this:

"Yeah, the mob boss called him a stool pigeon, but Harold "The Tongue" Beekman knew it was the right thing to do, turning the boss in for cheating on his eye exam. Harold had done the same thing years earlier and just look where it got him. He will remain in the witness protection program until further notice, so if you see him on the street, just look the other way."

Great story and fantastic Wacky Sockit, Pat! I am so excited to have won! Thanks!

Somehow I feel that I have missed an important bit of information like, what the heck is a whacky sockit and why haven't I ever heard of one? But congrats anyway, because you're a winner even if I'm an ignorant cretin (at least when it comes to sock inspired art/toy/thingies).

Jen-- that's why I included a link to my friend's etsy site. Her Wacky Sockits aren't super well-known as of yet, so feel free to check out her site and spread the word if you like what you see. Most of the world is ignorant when it comes to Wacky Sockits, Jen, so don't feel bad. ; )
