"bless your little cotton socks" is an old English expression which means something like "aww, how sweet" - most usually said when someone does or says something which is over-helpful. It is not an insult or a put down usually -but it can be condescending. I wrote it to be nice (definitely NOT 'mean').
Sorry, can't posrep you for the joke.
I wonder if I could persuade GothMel. to send me a pai.....
Stop it Sats, stop it!!!!!!!
