Finding your footing is one thing, finding foot after foot is another.

 

A severed1 human foot, this latest foot, five different feet.

 

The foot total is now six.

 

Actually it's back down to five. But we’ll get to that. We’re talking about feet in shoes, like the one seen in this exclusive photo obtained by Global TV, one foot washing up on the coastline of Canada's British Columbia is weird2 enough. But then they started turning up right and left, make that right, right, right, right and left.

 

A number of right feet, now a left foot.

 

All found since last summer by people walking or fishing, or walking the dog.

 

She wouldn't leave that running shoe.

 

Folks wondered if they came from 4 bodies still missing from a nearby plane crash, feet could naturally break off from a decomposing3 body and buoyant sneakers could carry them with a current. On Thursday, the sixth foot turned up.

 

In Adidas black man's shoe, size 10.

 

But then authorities had to do a flip-flop, you can forget the six feet under jokes, turns out the sixth foot was the skeleton of an animal paw placed in a sock and a shoe. Authorities call the apparent hoax4 reprehensible5, but even with just five feet. We haven't seen such a mystery since Big Foot, the last time a lost and found limb caused such a brouhaha was the custody6 fight over this guy's leg.

 

A real foot with five toes.

 

After loosing it in a plane crash, he left embalmed7 limb in a barbecue cooker in a storage facility, when he didn’t pay the rent, his belongings8 were auctioned9 off. The buyer Shannon Whisnant ended up calling 911.

 

What's the problem there?

I got a human foot.

You have what?

A human left foot.


Now we tried to resist sinking to the level of making tasteless foot puns, so instead of me sticking my foot in my mouth, I figured I’d let folks on the Internet do it.

 

 They're commenting on the five found feet story with puns like investigators10 are waiting for the other shoe to drop. The grisly finds make aching feet seem unworthy of complaint, and getting your feet wet, sure beats finding a foot waterlogged.
