Do not confuse them for hands!
And take care of the nails
Wear a gas mask!
I gave mine the boot.
But!! I don’t quite have one foot.

Why all der Fuß
They may take you places you don’t want to end up in!
I’ve been builded upside down: My nose runs, and my feet smell.
I would get all cross, if you put stakes in my hands and feet.
Make sure your feet trip carefully on slippery ground.
Beds of nails are for sleeping on
Falling down gently out of the question
Might be gout…
Feet, don’t impale me now!
Make sure nails are only on your toes.
Beware of feet, they’ve been known to step on your souls.

Daddy! Why do I keep walking round in circles?
Shut up son! Or I’ll nail your other foot to the floor.
It’s not our fault that Junior spilled the caltrops!
These are not my feet – I have two, they’re not blue, and certainly not cut above the ankles
You don’t want to hurt the spikes now!
Spikes in the “balls” of your feet, would hurt nowhere near as much, as having them stuck through the other ones.

Speaking of spikes in balls, have you read “Callahan’s Con” by Spider Robinson, (how Tony Donuts got his name) or “Star Island” by Carl Hiaasen (what Skink did to the crooked property developer)?
edit: “Callahan’s Lady” not “Con”.
(same series, wrong book.)

Nein. But it was one of the SS’s favourite tortures. They would stick fish hooks through them, then attach wires to the hooks, and hang the poor devil up. It was said by the French Resistance, that you could hear the bloke screaming, from a kilometre away
