As the bloodshed continues in Libya, accounts are emerging that a defiant Colonel Gaddafi has had his private sock collection flown out to Cuba for safe keeping.
Just in case.
Although Gaddafi has stated repeatedly that he is a warrior king who will die in Libya, the same rules do not apparently apply to his sock collection.
"He wants to save his socks," an insider told Skoob World News. "He's been collecting socks since the 1970's, and he's built up quite a collection."
According to sources, Gaddafi is prepared to lay down his life in pursuit of his desperate desire to cling to power at all costs, but he agonised for hours over the possible destiny of his sock collection.
"He's got thousands of pairs of socks," a former servant told us. "He's got sixteen pairs of Slade socks - that's where it all started. He's got Bert and Ernie socks, off Sesame Street, Animal socks off the Muppet Show, Road Runner Socks, Fawlty Towers socks, Bugs Bunny socks - and he's even got socks with socks on them. it's probably the most comprehensive collection of socks through the ages ever assembled. We filled eight huge trunks up solely with socks. I've never seen anything like it."
More sock related stupidity as we get it.
