Who is Eddie Socko?


Maybe this isn't a question you've been asking yourself for months, but thanks to Amber Lea Starfire it's a question I can finally answer.

...and no--Eddie Socko isn't John Galt.

It's been a long time coming, but No More Hot Lunches for Eddie Socko has landed at The Writer's Eye Magazine, an outstanding online venue that features fiction, poetry, photography, and myriad writing resources. In short, this place is awesome.

Endless thanks to Amber for her time, patience, and willingness to keep fighting. Despite time constraints, the struggling economy, and, simply, the hurdles that life throws at us, Amber's fortitude and passion to keep The Writer's Eye going is an inspiration.

Pull up a chair. Kill a few minutes. You'll be glad you did. I promise.

Great story, Mel. I really enjoyed it. I'm glad I now know what "No More Hot Lunches for Eddie Socko" means, which is hilarious, by the way.

Magnificat and his Amazing Sock Puppet Theatre. Surely there's a joke there. Surely.

Also, good job Mister Go-Getter. James would nudge you.

Thanks, Jason. I've been thinking of having an Eddie Socko giveaway contest. Problem is, I don't think anyone would want him. Not unless he's washed first. Maybe.

Happy Holiday weeekend, sir.

And thanks, Ms. Pet. James is going to nudge me with an ice pic. Wait...he's going to nudge YOU with an ice pic!

Ha ha!

I love James for his sexy bat-shit-craziness, but when it comes to "nudging", I'm leaning towards Paco. Maybe he'll nudge joo.

Point is, I wanna see some chicken chunks. Ahem.

Just read this thanks to the mention in your PANK interview. I would never in a hundred years have guessed that his was the meaning behind your blog title. Ha.

xTx, lest you underestimate it, the cumsock genre is as eternal as the sun and stars.
