I only did one sock in my 7 years on the old PNJ forum. I decided to be Ben Franklin and pretend to be a woman. Old Ben fooled his brother who was the owner of the Boston Paper, and he wrote some brilliant letters to the editor talking about his fate as a widow and the life's unfairness.
I decided that I would put a photo of Helen Reddy up and call myself Grandlocust. My only purpose was to support women, and particularly Sarah Palin. I became a rabid supporter of Sarah. I had all the woman on the forum angry with me as a poster......more angry than when I was Seaoat......I could feel their collective claws as they got very catty with my support of Palin.......but I started to talk about her being a good basketball player.....and Maroni who knows athletics first said this sounds like Mrs. Seaoat.....and finally said nope....it is seaoat. I was impressed, but it was a fun excercise which taught me a great deal. I never did it again. It was a one time deal, but I got a kick out people judging me on the picture of Helen Redy in her youth......meow!
