If we had a nickel for every guy we know who complains about their skinny legs, we'd have, well, a few nickels, probably. If you or someone you know is constantly bemoaning their skinny calves, check out Wundersock, a padded foam insert for guys to wear inside knee-high socks. Gawker reports: "Lederhosen store owner Herbert Lipah invented the "wonderbra for men." He exports Wundersock supplies to Scotland and Namibia. (Apparently Namibians are really into Oktoberfest. Something about colonialism.) Lipah says his store's wares are very popular with 'gays, tourists.'" [Gawker]
