Something is afoot, Watson.

In Canada, Theories Swirl With the Tide as 14th Human Foot Washes Ashore
WTF is this about? Feet?
MONTREAL — The mystery has haunted Canadians for more than a decade: One by one, human feet clad in running shoes have floated ashore on British Columbia’s southern coast with gruesome regularity.

Last weekend, foot No. 14 was discovered by a man strolling on a beach on Gabriola Island, a sleepy and picturesque enclave, population 4,000, that is known for its captivating sandstone and close-knit artistic community.

This time, the foot, squeezed between a pile of logs, wore what appeared to be a hiking boot, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Andy Watson, a spokesman for the Coroners Service, said this week that foul play had been ruled out in all the previous cases. Coroners have attributed the disembodied feet to suicide or accident — someone slipping and falling into the sea, for example, or a swimmer being swept into the ocean by a huge wave.

The Foot Book
by Dr. Seuss

Left foot, left foot

Right foot, right

Feet in the morning

Feet at night.

Left foot,

Left foot,

Left foot,

Right.

Wet foot, dry foot

Low foot, high foot

Front feet, back feet

Red feet, black feet

Left foot, right foot

Feet, feet, feet

How many, many feet you meet.

Slow feet, quick feet.

Trick feet, sick feet

Up feet, down feet

Here come the clown feet.

Small feet, big feet

Here come the pig feet.

His feet, her feet

Fuzzy fur feet

In the house and on the street,

How many, many feet you meet.

Up in the air feet

Over a chair feet

More and more feet

Twenty-four feet.

Here come more and more..................................and more feet!

Left foot. Right foot.

Feet. Feet. Feet.

Oh how many feet you meet.

"Washing up." I would have thought a foot in a running shoe would be too dense and simply sink.

Listy--You know about these ... things. What's your opinion on this?

Wouldn't happen with good, solid, American-made shoes. Fuckin' foreigners!

Color me skeptical. Things that keep us afloat are our guts (lots of fat) and our lungs (full of air). Dismembered feet in running shoes?

No. I maintain these will not float on their own.
