A few weeks ago I invited readers to vote for their own Irrational – the best socks worn by a speaker at a Profit & Loss conference this year, and the votes are in!
Obviously the wearers of the socks are anonymous (although I am pretty sure I know who was wearing the winners!) but the voting went as follows:
In fifth place, Socks A – The Ties
Sadly…nul point. No votes. Nada!
Thankfully things were slightly better and the readership had more to like about the sartorial taste of the wearer of Socks E – I believe they are depicting table tennis equipment – which managed 5.9% of the votes.
Third place and the Bronze Medal (no medals supplied of course) goes to Socks D – the Fish, which managed 17.6% of the vote.
Second place, our plucky runner up, is Socks C – simply the stripes, which garnered 23.5% of the vote.
Which means our winner, who gets what all winners in the Irrationals get – our very best wishes – is Socks B, the Cats. As a dog lover obviously I have issues with this, but this is nothing if not an honest poll and so, with a massive 53% of the votes, ladies and gentlemen, I give you our winner of the P&L Socks competition 2018.
Of course, the challenge is now set down for speakers at our 2019 events – wear something interesting if you want to make the ultimate short list!
