New app renders decades of sock jokes useless


Say hello to BlackSocks, the socks with an RFID chip that ensures you’ll never have to worry about mismatching your pairs of identical black socks again. The app, which we swear to god is a real thing, starts at $189 and also boasts such nifty features as keeping track of how many washes your socks have had — you know, for those of us who are just too busy to actually, you know, use our eyes to determine how worn they are. Way to go, BlackSocks, years of standup routines down the drain. Somewhere, Jerry Seinfeld is quietly sobbing in a vintage sports car.
