I had to think about it, but didn't take long. Funny joke.
Related joke. One of my friends in school had a crush on a girl who had long hair. The girl used to tie her hair in a single braid. In Hindi, a braid is called "Choti". In Hindi this is called "Yeh" (pronounced like "eh" with a Y sound in the beginning) One day while daydreaming about the girl, he came up with "Yeh choti is H-O-T"

(And I still can't get over the feeling that if it were me in that department store, I would have just pointed at the socks that I was already wearing. I have a fair amount of experience with speaking other languages badly and find that pointing at things is an essential communication tool.)
