My left big toe hurts.

I wonder if it could be gout?

I remember cartoons about guys with gout.

Just the drawings, not the captions.

There was always some old rich guy sitting in a big chair, swollen foot resting on a hassock, big toe bandaged.

Well, maybe it is only out of joint.

Maybe I need a toe chiropractor.

Damn toe.
