It appears the Romans may have committed the ultimate fashion crime: wearing socks with sandals. According to News.com.au, archaeologists have discovered a bronze statue that seems to be wearing a sock under its sandals.
The theory seems to be that this may not have been commonplace throughout the Roman Empire, but only confined to Britain, because the Romans didn't want their toes getting cold. I can't say I blame them, having had the experience of living through several British winters. But socks with sandals? Ughhh.
And now for something completely different: Aaron Sorkin's last West Wing episode airs in Australia on Tuesday night. Expect a complete wrap up, or more likely, lots of random babbling, on Wednesday.
