    An unsteady dancer from Dover
    Had no fear of public exposure---
    His simian feet
    Could not keep a beat,
    But he tumbled with ape-like composure.

    What a clever way to fulfill a foot fetish...be a foot researcher!

    What really makes this funny is it's based on a two-million-year-old human-ish fossil that was recently found. They named it "Australopithecus sediba." Sounds like they had too much "cannibithecus sativa" during the naming process.

    Feet upon the floor
    Hairy tops and well trimmed nails
    Do you smell bad cheese?

    A haiku...
