Sock puppets. What do we really know about them? Better still, how did such a tepid, tame form of entertainment get so popular? Believe it or not, the things have been around since the 1920s, but in recent years have made such a comeback that they are even sold in the Cracker Barrel gift shops!

Just so you know, the sock puppets in the video below are NOT your garden variety Cracker Barrel denizens.

DISCLAIMER: The video is nothing more than a bit of levity and very goofy fun – but it’s RAUNCHY. It’s from the Man Show, which ought to tell you all you need to know.

And while I realize that kids are not as innocent as they once were, this really isn’t family stuff. If I were ranking it according to Hollywood standards, I guess it’d be PG because it’s sock puppets, and since there’s no nudity … but the implications are pretty overt.

So what does any of this have to do with Christmas stockings? Stockings are sometimes called socks and they’re kind of shaped like socks … get it?
