BIG FLOPPY FOOT problems


I gather from this circus magazine that circus performers suffer from a lot of common ailments, especially clowns.

Now we find out that they also have feet that need some soothing care. Johnson’s Foot Soap to the rescue. Mind you this company is still in business. About now I could use some since I go barefoot most of the summer. I’m not a shoe fan. And if I can get away with being barefoot in the winter I do it.

Now, I have one question…what size tub do those clowns with the big floppy feet need? I’m thinking perhaps a horse trough. I could be wrong.

Now, clown…creepy or not? You decide.

    1. I'm assuming the pharmaceutical companies are working on a medication for this. Can't wait to see the commercials!

  2. Maybe I should look for some of that soap too, since I run around bare foot as much and as often as I can get away with.

    1. I think it's made from borax and baking soda with something else. Probably going to be a difficult product to find.
