Toe Wrestling Is Like Arm Wrestling, But With Toes

This would be an acceptable pastime, excepting the fact that toes are gross and unacceptable substrates for spectation or sport.
Leg wrassling, now there's a contest I can get behind, in closed toes shoes... at a safe distance.

Toe Wrestling Is Like Arm Wrestling, But With Toes

Yes. Yes, of course it is.

And now I am like more the wiser, but with toes.

One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war.

Oh..sorry..wrong thread.

I'm totally digging the leopard print toenails.

I have a confession to make.

I used to do this with my sister when we were little kids (like 4 or 5 years old). On long car trips, we'd be in the backseat, utterly bored. Toe war, or more concisely, foot wars commenced frequently.

She always won.

Just being able to pinch people with your toes is a gift.

I'd rather go arm in arm than go toe to toe.

I hope Sylvester Stallone makes a movie out of this.

Don't you think that would be over the top?

I used to puncture seaweed bladders on the beach with one quick toe motion.

My brother and wife refer to them as "cobras".

I've always assumed that orangutans have some degree of empathy and politeness. If they didn't, they would spend a lot of time pointing at our toes and laughing.

I think I'd have to insist that Nasty Nash thoroughly douse his dogs in miconazole before I were to bring mine anywhere near them.

*Waits for Sylvester Stallone to make truck-driving toe-wrestling father son action-family drama movie.*

My partner had some horrible renegade gym teacher in junior high who thought girls should educate their toes, not simply let them sit wasted and moribund, imprisoned in shoes for life, but free them-- free them do whatever they can do!

What they can do is pinch harder than I can pinch with my fingers. Which they do. At night, in bed. Whenever I say anything that annoys her. Which I do a lot less than I used to, for some reason.

My sister used to call me 'monkey toes' because I had a habit of picking up most anything -- coins, pencils, laundry, trash -- with my feet instead of stooping. That habit came to a rather abrupt halt when I found myself about to pick up a dropped baby bottle with my toes.

I hope Sylvester Stallone makes a movie out of this.

Movie proposals to capture the toe wrestling dollar:

Over the Toe
Space Toe Jam
Field of Toes
Toenail and I


OK, I'm stopping.

Adding the awesome women arm wrestlers from Caucasus into the mix.
