Seriously. No thanks. I reaaaallly don't want one of these beasts (or its underdeveloped brothers...) sucking on my pinkie toe.

Gross.

We are definitely in the wrong business.

Megan...
Don't know if we could persuade people to pay us for that kind of service up here.
Better stick with what we know...
