A local sock wearer has unilaterally decided to drop down to a single pair of socks today against his family’s advice.
Dad, Peter Thape has ignored government warnings and will attempt the walk from his house to his car in the traditional late August attire of only one pair of socks.
Thape believes the three year winter to be over, but does accept that he’s got this wrong six times already this year.
‘This surely is it!’ said Thape.
‘If I don’t return, tell the children that their caribou skin coats are pegged out by the fire,’ added Thape.
