Pattern Description:

So you're just about to head home after a long day at work and your boss corners you to tell you that he's just scheduled a 5 hour long meeting tomorrow. "OMG" you think "5 hours?! WTF is he going to talk about for 5 hours? I'd better wear my comfy pants... and my special meeting socks!"

Knit these socks: if you like to be a bit irreverent, but know you should likely just STFU.

Don't knit these socks: if you're now clutching your pearls, saying "Well, I never...!"

These socks tell the world: pretty much exactly what you're thinking.

We call this colour: OMGWTFPink
