I recently obtained Socky and I have no idea what to do with him!

He is is so rambunctious and volatile...

He complains that he wants to be placed on my head... but that is just wrong, so wrong, but whenever I go to a mirror to see how Socky looks I forget what I was doing.

So I am asking you: Where should Socky be placed?

On your hand, where any good sock puppet belongs.


I store mine in my set of winter bash hats. But I think that it has been getting out.

Every once in a while I see a post that seems like it was mine, but ... it was the sock puppet! dun dun dun

Keep your socket puppet hidden, no one needs to know about your evil twin or what they are up to. mwuahaha!


How about peeking over your shoulder?

    To be serious for a second this will only work if the puppet is facing backwards or could go behind the avatar. As the situation stands, the orientation of the puppet precludes it peeking over the shoulder when viewed from a screen. Obviously, what the secret computer unicorn gremlins see is a completely different matter. – ben is uǝq backwards Dec 18 '13 at 16:51

Sounds like a handful... BA DUM TSS!

But seriously, if he gets out of hand, sock him one. They really can't reason.

If all else fails, bring the cat. Cats are always awesome.

I'll see myself out.
