AINT NATURE, WONDERFUL!
Feet
Feet are the flivvers of the human
system!
They are made to walk with and
for other people to walk on.
Each foot is equipped with five un
necessary tQes. They are always in
a state of revolution that would
make the Mexican affair look about
as exciting as a christening. And'
you can't blame some feet for kick
ing, especially the feet whose male
owners enshroud them in socks that
are louder and noisier than a prize
fighter's" manager, or the women
who give their No. 7 feet a life sen
tence in a pair of No. 4 shoes.
Feet grow to an enormous size on
lazy persons. Did you ever notice
the floor space taken up by the feet
of policemen, detectives, politicians
and society women? '
