Sentence: James was standing naked in his bedroom. He couldn't find his socks. He grabbed his iphone which was strapped to his hip -- that's right he slept with it and nothing else. He texted his socks. They didn't reply. He twittered them. No response. He phoned. No answer. So he googled his name plus socks and found a post on his blog which said "Look in sock drawer". And thank goodness he did, otherwise he would have had a googleptic fit.
