I got it right. The hint was a dead give away. Nice Teaser though.

No wonder the salesman had a big grin when I bought a dozen knickerbockers with elasticated legs and several waterproof macintoshes!

wow, i'm really confused. I know it is a teaser, but why would you sell stuff using that pricing method. It's like $5 por a pair of socks.

Here's a logic problem for you:
Me + logic = does not compute!
I stink at logic!
But it was fun.

P.S. bgil, "a pair of socks" would be $12, not $5. It would be $5 for just "socks".
