TONY BLAIR ANNOUNCES HIS RETIREMENT AS LEADER OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT...

...but Presidential 'candidate' Jake Gyllenhaal triumphantly steals his thunder with THE RETURN OF SOCK WATCH!

  • COLOUR: White. Cannot say confidentally if they are 'bright' or 'off' due to shadowing.
  • TYPE: Again, difficult to correctly assess. Tempted to say 'ribbed' but don't want to be held responsible for any fallout that may occur if it turns out they are not.
  • HEIGHT: Ankle? Possibly longer socks that have been turned-down...but again, will not commit as don't want to start rumours and then the inevitable resulting wide-spread hysteria.
  • OVERALL STATUS: Inconclusive but still exciting.

Damn those Yank politicans and their showy vote winning tactics!

Just to prove that they really are complete buffoons, they've put their precious watermark right over his face. Hello??

Still, Sock Watch is always worth a smile, even if Jake does look like he's marching in a parade. Maybe he's practicing for some patriotic demonstration to coincide with the announcement of his candidacy?

Too bad our Commander-in-Thief Shrub isn't announcing his retirement. I take that back how about : IMPEACHEMENT!!!

PS: Sockwatch got me hooked on JW in the 1st place!!

I'm new to the glory of Jakewatch, but i definately thinking that those are turned down socks.

Sock Watch!! *squeee*

Ankle? Possibly longer socks that have been turned-down...but again, will not commit as don't want to start rumours and then the inevitable resulting wide-spread hysteria.

LMFAO!!!

But if they were any longer, they would hide the sexy ankles.

the more gyllenbody uncovered the better...

theshowerlady said...

kaydee,WWHD???I am 99% certain these are Nikes (Just do it!), bcz his shoes are Nikes today in that picture and he is always coordinated and matched up to within an inch of his life. There's a sort of insouciant exhuberance to him, parading across the street like that!!! I'm sure he is going to kiss babies and schmooze some sweet little old ladies. Susan Srandon and Jamie Lee Curtis are arranging a tea for him. They've asked Jennifer Aniston not to come, so out of revenge, she is sending Diane Lane...

I love Sock Watch just as much as the next JW agent..... really, I do! But would it be a bad thing to branch out with a Shoe Watch?

This guy has to be one serious shoe freak (it takes one to know one). These look like yet another new pair of Nike's. As the showerlady so eloquently pointed out:

"bcz his shoes are Nikes today in that picture and he is always coordinated and matched up to within an inch of his life."

Just saying..... watching Jake's delightful shoe wardrobe could keep us occupied during the inevitable periodic sock drought.

He is marching with purpose, isn't he?

britpopbaby said...

Shoe Watch has been broached before. Whilst I understand the interest in Jake's large Nike collection, I just don't want to take any interest away from the socks. The socks are pure.

cina said...

Plus, I mean, we have a natural interest in his socks since we are the ones providing him with them. ;)

Shaken, not Stirred said...

Yes, please focus on the socks!!!

Wishing everyone here at JW in the US a Happy Mothers Day this Sunday. Maybe Jake will stop by in NY to visit his Mom and Sister since I think they are in NY ( I saw some pap pics)before he heads off to Cannes.

haha, your funnnn-ay.

but i'm not mocking this serious matter...what colour are those socks?

Maggie is supposed to go to London to shoot Batman soon. So maybe the entire family will be in NYC for MD before leaving for Cannes/London.

I think Jake prolly gets free shoes. I bet he could auction half his shoes off on eBay and still have enuf to wear a different pair every day!

Thank you BPB for all your recent posts about Politics! I love those because, like you, I am NOT a superficial person drooling over a celebrity on a daily basis. Let’s see now... Will Gordon Brown be the next British Prime Minister? (It’s a beautiful spring day, the sun is shining and Jake is prancing around). What will be the impact of this change in the UK’s foreign policy? (Jake looks like a high school kid dressed for gym class. How cute is that!) What new priorities will the new head of the British government define? (Jake is wearing his favourite ankle-length socks!! Yay! The sunrays are gently caressing his tender skin around the firm leg muscles and the exquisitely carved ankles...). OK, next time can we discuss Global Warming?

theshowerlady said...

If Jake goes to Cannes for Zodiac, will it be warm enough for him to go to the beach and be shirtless...and wet? He will probably not be wearing socks, bcz he will be wearing sandals or flip flops....I know.

britpopbaby said...

pink mist, we cannot discuss global warming I'm afraid because once PG gets going, she doesn't stop - starts slinging things round the JW office and making threats.

As for the other questions - yes, Gordon Brown will be the next PM but how long will he last? Can Cameron really secure a Tory victory? I read that Blair considers Cameron more of a predecessor than Brown.

I predict the policy in Iraq will continue for the time being until Brown is more established and then we may see some change. Can Brown really forge a link with the White House that Blair managed?

theshowerlady said...

I don't know the rules, but I think Jake should be Prime Minister of the UK! Then he can run for president and Wills can be his running mate...or Harry, but Harry is to military!...then when Jake runs for President of the US, he will be able to restore the Commonwealth to its former glory!!! The Royals will love it and the US will love it and Jake can, once and for all, bring about World Piece!!!(Oops! typo...)
