This Little Piggy.

Stubbed Toe.jpgDid you every stub your big toe so bad that you saw stars?

Did it continue to throb afterwards, even after applying cold stuff?

Did it hurt like a bitch when you even slightly touch it?

Did the purple hue set in a few hours later?

Did the purple pain maker prevent you on the day after the injury from doing your morning walk?

Did it prevent you from wearing anything on your feet other than those horrible thongy things (a/k/a flip flops), which I believe to be nothing more than Asian torture devices?

For your sake, I hope not.


  1. That sounded like it was going like an Acidman post…where he would end it with: No? Good, me neither.

    Sorry about your toe-toe, Jim

  2. Broken?

  3. I broke my foot about 2 weeks ago, stubbing a toe. (stubbed it so hard it broke the bone behind it.) I feel your pain.

    But seriously, get it checked.

  4. Did you ever ride a bicycle barefooted and have a sweaty foot slip off the pedal when you were riding balls to the wall down a gravel road? And to make it worse were you at least two miles from home and had to ride the damn bike home with the end of your toes rubbed off by the gravel and both knees bloody from the tumble you took? As acidman would say, no? me neither but acidman lied and so do I.

  5. It sounds like you’ve got a broken toe my dear. Get a doc to look at it, he’ll at least give you some painkillers and a “boot” so you can walk, and most importantly, walk later on. That sort of thing can sneak up on you when you get older.

  6. Ouch – handing over an icepack – put that foot up until you can get to the doctor. Of course they’ll charge you a ton of money and tell you – dude it’s broken let’s tape it up. Heh.

  7. Yes, I have. My toe was broken and so is yours.

  9. Ouch my friend. With that colour, get it checked and get to feeling better soon!

  10. Did you ever fall directly on the end of your new stump 1 week after getting home from the above knee amputation?

    I think I got your stubbed toe story beat by 3/4s of a leg. I found new stars, planets, whole universes… then I woke up…. TO MORE PAIN!!!!

    It’s funny now but, not then. WOW!

  11. OPPS!

    By the way, get it checked, it may be broken.

  12. Owwww Jim! Dude, that sounds broken. I have been there, too and I am soooo sorry.

    Get it checked out, if only to make sure you didn’t break more than the toe.

  13. I never did anything as trivial as stubbing my toe. A piece of 1-1/4″ alloy steel plate slipped and fell a fraction of an inch onto mine. That was 15 years ago and I still have problems with that toe because of how the replacemment toenail grew in.

    As an alternative to flipflops, get a pair of Chuckie Taylors and cut the toecap off the one.

  14. Back when I was a kid my mom opened the freezer, a frozen chicken fell on her toe, and broke her toe.

    You should have seen the faces at the emergency room.
