256: "Here I Stand" socks
Luthersocke
Martin Luther was very probably wearing socks just like these when he delivered his defiant "Here I stand, I can do no other" speech before Emperor Charles V. His Mum would have made sure of it: "You're not going to see the Emperor without your best socks on."

Which is why it's so appropriate that the town of Wittenberg, where Luther lived, is now selling the Luther Sock, complete with his "Here I stand" speech, which he probably never made, spoilsport scholars say.

The Luthersocke: yours for just 7 Euros.

Thanks be unto Lori Erickson of the Spiritual Travels blog for the sock alert and photo.
