I thought I could lay my hands on a cartoon clipping which explains the whole thing.
Never mind, I think I know it by heart.
It was a narrative cartoon by Jules Pfeiffer, dated c1975, and the story line goes like this;
"I went to the laundromat.
Included in the wash were ten pairs of socks.
Out of the machine, came seven pairs of socks and one black sock.
On the following week, I went to the laundromat.
Included in the wash were seven pairs of socks.
Out of the machine came four pairs of socks, one blue sock, and one red sock.
On the following day, I went to the laundromat.
As an experiment, I put in nothing except my last four pairs of socks.
Out of the machine came a body-stocking.
Inside the body stocking I found a note.
The note said "Quit playing around with the laws of nature, and bring the machine more socks"
