An Ode to Feet

This little ditty's really quite neat
And pays homage to hooves, dogs - feet!
Some folks love to dip them in the pool

Others use them to be quite the fool

Some I've seen full of tats

These are Usain Bolt's, what's up with that?

Some folks bronze them 'cause they love them so much

Others get close, play footsie and such

Some get scraped, bloody and bruised

Others sport dainty fuck-me shoes

These ones I saw sitting in a movie seat

And these are so tiny and perfect and neat

Most people's have a total of (count 'em) ten toes
But very few can successfully touch them to their nose!

Pump those little feet of yours and run don't walk over to Humor Bloggers Dot Com and see how other bloggers have played footsie today.
Today's the last day for this week's caption contest.
Winner announced tomorrow

I wish I had been as creative. Of course, I usually think that.

Sorry, the Metallica grossed you out. :( I guess you're old school, huh? ;)

What a nice footsie rhyme. I can't believe you didn't find a picture of a foot with six toes!
nonamedufus said…
Nooter: Of course for you they're the paws that refreshes.

Quirks: My ex mother-in-law used to spray mine with lysol. Not too subtle.

Jenn: Oh what a great line! Wish I'd thought of it.

RG: Just for you:

On the internet I found some pics
Of toes on feet in groups of six

thinkinfyou: That's the beauty of this post: something for everyone. Glad you enjoyed it.
That girl using her feet to hold the wine glass -- is that a more aggressive form of tying a cherry stem into a knot with your teeth?

Fun post.

Fun post - thanks for sharing it with you should get a ton of traffic from the foot fetish crowd.
That's a very nice, lighthearted poem about feet that you wrote. Also, not that I care, but a friend of mine might, you don't have a phone number for the girl whose drinking wine with her feet do you? She seems very limber. Nice, I mean, not limber. :)

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
