Quantum entanglement made easy

I just thought of the best ever explanation of entanglement.

Take some labeled (L & R) foot-specific running socks.

Close your eyes.

Put one sock in front of you.

Take the other anywhere: down the street, to another city or country, to another galaxy many light years away.

Open your eyes and look at the sock in front of you.

Instantly, no matter where the distant aka non-local sock is, you know which foot it's for.

The socks are entangled.*

*Note that this does not apply to socks you've lost in the laundry — those are in hyperspace.
