Fun socks are no laughing matter for fraudster!
Sylvia Rogers, a self-confessed penniless mother of three from Wythenshawe in Manchester, did not have too much of a laugh in court yesterday after being handed a six-month suspended sentence for fraud.

However, the pensioner - who was convicted of building up £60,000 using fraudulent benefit claims - perhaps tried to stick it to the courts by wearing a pair of fun socks which journalists have not taken too kindly to.

The novelty socks had the design "Show me the money" knitted into them, with a huge dollar sign drawing the attention of the cameras.

Ms Rogers, who claimed £28,000 and put it in high-yield accounts as opposed to simply squandering it, denied that her fun socks were intentional - although hosiery lovers will no doubt protest that there's a time and place for such great legwear.

Although novelty socks are always a favourite with people across the world, the predicted trend in fashion - as per the LG Fashion Week in Toronto - is going to be leggings.

Socks make the perfect gift
