Will my feet fall off?
« on: 10/10/2009 04:45:47 »
Not so long ago, I was trying on a pair of shoes. It was not obvious that the shoes actually fitted my feet that well, so the nice shoe salesman suggested we take an X-ray peek to see how the shoes fitted. I remember looking into a machine, and I could see my toe bones wiggling in my shoes! How cool is that?

Suddenly, those machines vanished.

Were my feet so irradiated that they are about to fall off?

Well, it doesn't seem that long ago, even though it was towards the middle of the last century.

Yikes! Looks nasty. Shines right through your socks too. It's only my toes that glow in the dark.

Mind you, no need to buy a Christmas tree. Just stand on your head at the window instead.

I think it might be prudent to attach a tracking device to your feet just in case they do fall off.


Not being able to find misplaced detached feet can really ruin your day !

Won't be a problem. My feet (according to some people anyway) tend towards the aromatic. My terriers will be able to track them down in no time.

Hey! Maybe the X-ray machine is responsible for the aroma? Wonder if the company that made the machine is still in business? Sounds like an opportunity for Honest Geezer, Attorney at Law. This could turn into a serious Class Action lawsuit. Rich! Rich, I tell you! Finally, I'm going to be rich!

Are ewe sure your terriers won't make a meal of your feet when they find them ?

....as a practising sheep lawyer and as a participatory agent in these discussions in a consultative fashion I hope my reward will be met also !

The terriers may be hungry, but they do have standards.

I have consulted with my associates and we would like to offer you the opportunity to name the lawsuit as compensation for your miniscule contribution. We would suggest something along the lines of;

"Sheepy sues the ass off X-rays R Us"

or something along those lines. Kindly have your counsel contact us at the earlist opportunity.

H. Geezer.

Attorney at Law
