Wool, a type of fuzzy compound commonly used to make socks and ugly holiday sweaters, was invented by Albert Einstein in 1927, earning him the Nobel Prize in Fleece-work. Einstein used much of Heisenberg's work in inventing wool, as Heisenberg invented Sheep. Iron wool, however, did not come about until Professor Esmail Zanjani, of the University of Nevada, managed to create a sheep that was 15% steel. However, he was unable to shear his sheep until Anonymous invented diamond-coated shears. Take note, this is not to be mistaken with Steel Wool, which is a substance resembling wool that is used for severe and, most times chronic, masturbation.
Theory of Fuzzitivity
Einstein came about wool through his theory of Fuzzitivity, shown here:
Einstein concluded that sheep could only be cute with fuzziness, and vice versa. Therefore, he concluded, there must be something contributing to the fuzziness to make sheep so darn cute. Since pi equals exactly three, and there are three vowels in wool (if you count "w" as a vowel), Einstein decided to invent wool in order to make the equation correct.
Einstein took a cauldron and used the following recipe, deduced from random mathematics:
Wool was invented automagically.
The task of marketing the "have you any wool, yes ma'am, yes sir, three bags full" concept went to F. W. Woolworth, the five-and-dime store lad of Utica NY. His initial approach, conceived while watering his flock in Watertown, was to establish the Woolco network: dedicated to marketing by pulling the wool over the eyes of the Canadian and American public.
Being as wool was created by godless Scientists it is quite easy for even beginner demons to possess it and cause murderous mayhem (see Paula Abdul), however this was outlawed by Microsoft in 1999 and cases of it have subsided since.
