  1. 2 hours in the stocks just for being drunken... wow! things were rough back then. my grandfather, who was from sicily, used to live in the other side of our house when i was growing up and he used to call socks... stocks. i guess he thought it was short for stockings but it used to crack me up as a kid when he'd say "put your stocks on"
