World to Google: Socks aren't funny

I like Google as much as the next guy, and I can't wait till the translation we saw in the Google Factory Tour comes out of the lab.
But that is in fact not the most shocking revelation of the factory tour. This questionable honour fall on the "fun facts about Google employees" sprinkled throughout the presentation. These turn out to be almost exclusively about employee sock buying habits. And from this simple fact we can determine that apart from being driven and brilliant, the Google people are also terminal bores.
Sock buying habits just aren't that funny. Relying on sock jokes for comic relief for an antire hour long presentation is just...painful.
Item II about that presentation: The frequency with which the word monetize was used in presentations made me think of that horrible web 1.0 term, sticky eyeballs.
