Not much of a joke if people don't realise it's supposed to be one.
Which is a common failing with written - as opposed to visual - interaction.
Hence the existence of emoticons such as :whistle: and :wink: to give people a clue.
:biggrin:


Fair enough you didn't get it, and I have used emoticons in the past but in this instance I was hoping that the use of the words 'fashion icon' on a forum for aircraft spotters would have been enough of a giveaway that tongue was in cheek.

Never mind, I'll get my coat.... (Alexander McQueen obviously, their new winter collection is simply to die for)

Angler John Wilson.

Never fished a day in my life, but for some reason I used to quite like watching this guy on the TV, before fishing became an extreme sport for minor celebrities.

Nope....whoever's sock it was will just invent another one.
Intelligent sockmeisters plan ahead by having a number of unused sock accounts registered months or even years ago.

Not for a number of years & not on this forum.
When you have several of your socks arguing with each other ( or with your proper account name ) and other people are jumping in to attack/defend them & you can keep it going for as long as you want without anyone realising, then you know you're an ubersockmeister. :biggrin:
