    "Thumbs"

    How magnificent! We've taken both of them for granted (one on our left hand and one on our right). How would we function without them? What would we do without a precision or power grip? Forget Oriental Entrees requiring Chop Sticks. (gb)

    Or as was more preferred by Caligula, "Toes down".

    It's said that Mister Geppetto had an unusual Fixation with The Human Proboscis. So much so, that he created Pinocchio. Stees, you appear to have a similar Fixation with The Human Big Toe. Do one of your Big Toes enlarge to the point where it protrudes through your sock and shoe when you fib? You'll notice that I didn't pose the same question to Johnny. (gb)

    So, Stees, when you tell the truth what grows?

    In Japan and Korea people are used to say:
    "Is it your thumb up or are you just happy to see me?"

    "Here’s a list of all the things that you apparently cannot do without your thumb.
    Especially your right thumb:

    • Open a door.
    • Eat your food.
    • Apply toothpaste on your toothbrush without getting it all over the basin.
    • Write. YOU CANNOT WRITE.
    • Type fast. (It saves time!)
    • Pick up a baby.
    • Pick up anything for that matter.
    • Smack someone on their face.
    • Let someone kiss your thumb...
    • Turn a page.
    • Did I mention you can’t write?
    • Watch TV without thinking about it.
    • Play an instrument.
    • Play volleyball.
    • Or throw a ball. OR basketball. OR POOL.
    • Do gardening. Not that I’m interested, but I’d like to have the option.
    • Open a packet of chips.
    • Play thumb wars."
