On vacation to Louisiana, we bought take home gifts of hot sauce. Apparently having more than 3 ounces of this burn-your-soul liquid is illegal on airplanes. Our gifts were confiscated. When I got home I ordered these alligator socks for gifts and pretended I had bought them in Louisiana. Certainly captures the theme of wild life there. These socks saved the day as the gifts arrived quickly and were beloved by all recipients.
