I opened the comments knowing instinctively that the first comment would have an image of this sort. Thank you for not disappointing me.

The image is gone :( Can you tell me what it was? Was it a Christmas stocking?

I assume some form of sock with buttons

You can rely on me, milud.

Thanks Joe, this picture is helping me to remember that ŝtrumpoj is stockings

I remember it through strumpet but that's not very politically correct. You can sometimes see a button in stockings, at the top, in the middle, but that's beneath them.

I think it comes from the German word Strumpf, though I have no idea where _that_word comes from.

English is not my first language, and I didn't know there was a word like "stockings". Thanks, Duo!

Just wondering if anyone knows if this is where the word strumpet (as in whore) comes from?

The speaker sounds a bit bitchy when he says this sentence :D

Mi aŭskultis denove. Jes, li sonas "a bit bitchy" .
