Here is an encore performance of one of my favorite My Odd Sock’s.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 


DATELINE:  My Odd Sock Laboratory 12/01/09


With startling new evidence, researchers at My Odd Sock Labs have uncovered up-close, never before seen footage of the debilitating disease widely known as multiple sclerosis.


Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, affects over 400,000 Americans and over 2.5 million people throughout the world.  MS is an autoimmune disease whereby the nerves of the brain and spinal cord are damaged by one’s own immune system.  In a process called demyelination, nerves are stripped of their protective & insulating covering (the myelin sheath) disrupting the flow of signals from the brain.


Research team analyzing scientific data.


My Odd Sock Labs is led by the acclaimed Dr. Ivan Von Hoof-N-Mouth.  Dr. Hoof-N-Mouth is assisted by his assistant, Assistant Manager Edith Dame Saggybags.  Also assisting in further assistant duties are Odd Sock, Captain Pink, Rabbit and Dale.




Water or Vodka?



Since late July, young, handsome My Odd Sock scientists have been working tirelessly to find the cause of this disease.




Scientific computations too complex to explain.



Although My Odd Sock Labs is still awaiting a grant to upgrade its aging computer system, this doesn’t deter the research team from their drive to find MS answers! 




Working in the My Odd Sock Laboratory



Powerful instruments have enabled scientists at My Odd Sock to look just beyond “squinting really hard” to uncover dramatic evidence of the demyelination process as it happens.



The Findings

In a rushed effort not to be out-scooped by the investigative reporters of TMZ, the research team at My Odd Sock offer these grainy, primitive images of multiple sclerosis.




In this picture, you will first notice MS’s resemblance to some sort of prehistoric bird.  Dinosaur-like appendages.  Over-sized head (like your author).  And a plated tail, possibly for bodily cooling.






Here you see the vicious carnage of MS tearing the myelin sheath from the spinal cord using razor-sharp teeth.  The MS shows no remorse.







Finally, a head-on image of MS happily devouring the myelin sheath, which eerily resembles Kraft cheese slices.  Let us pray the progression slows.




My Odd Sock sincerely hopes the preceeding graphic images offer you greater understanding of the debilitating disease of Multiple Sclerosis.
