This is a picture of a man's unintentional camouflage socks on the subway. Or, who knows, maybe it was intentional and he was actually trying to hide his ankles on purpose. I try to hide my ankles on purpose. You know why? "Kankles." They're embarrassing and I hate them and it sucks because I love wearing culottes and boat shoes. "You're a fancy dresser." You know who Mr. Peanut calls for fashion advice? "Not you." He's really missing out though.
Thanks to Andrea, who agrees you don't want to blend in to the subway too well or somebody might sit on you.
