“So they really clothes school tomorrow."/ “They shirt it down."/ “That socks.”

A jocular conversation between students is:

“So they really clothes (closed) school tomorrow.”
“They shirt (shut) it down.”
“That socks (sucks).”
“I was underwear (unaware) of this.”

The puns were posted on Twitter in January 2018 and have been printed on several images.
