What Is Afoot In BC?

What's afoot in British Columbia? Well, it aint just 12 American inches. Apparently it has 5 toes, and comes ashore wrapped in an athletic shoe. Yep, these are genuine human feet! Since 2007, 13 severed human feet have been found running up along the southern coast of BC.

What I want to know is how are the limbs ending up there? In that particular spot? There is no sole explanation for these feats of pedomotivity.

While many have hypothesized as to the origins of the mysterious feet, most remain stumped. (Those who think they know obviously refuse to be defeated). For myself, I'm not gonna leap to any conclusions, but walking back the series of events through news footage are steps you can take if you wanna try and solve the mystery. There is even a wiki page for it.

What do you guys think?

Yes, but what if it’s a left foot?

304.8 mm

Were they athlete's feet,
Were they found in a trench,
Were they found on a seat,
Were they found on a bench.
Were their toes in the sand,
Where did they land,

OK done I'm stompin outta here

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Hmmm...seems something is stinky in BC. Hopefully it's not a fungus among them. I think they'll need foot patrol.

Well, they found no cleats,
Or nearby fleets.
The trench of the wench
Was laid on the bench
Her toes were all tanned
But it wasn’t Streisand

Stomp on!

As Sherlock always says, "There's something afoot Watson!"

Ha!

I know where to send the patrols. Send one to the market. Keep one home. Let one have Roast beef, but let the other have none. Be careful. One is likely to cry “wee wee” all the way home.

Agreed. I deduce it was an amateur. Obviously a tenderfoot.

You say they found no cleats,
Were they just bare naked feets,
Could they have been in clogs,
You know shoes made from logs,
Bare naked feets what the heck,
That wouldn't be good on a ships deck . . . of ol' wood,

Rhyme on

Well done. i'm stumped for a snappy comeback.

As a BC resident, I've read lots of theories over the years, but I can't remember any of them. I wonder if the Southeast Asian tsunamis of the last few years are related in any way?

Check out my profile or and become a "watcher" of my blog FMAOPLS,to learn more about me, and for intelligent, lively, smartassy and fun discussion, with a little irreverence thrown in. "Like" or comment on my photos, and I promise I'll add more. Thanks.

I would say my fellow Canadian and lover of B.C. figured out the Case of the Missing Feet. Seems she did not miss a step with her conclusion. Talk about someone with a Foot Fetish...Crikey...

One can never have enough JOY in their life...

Sounds like there may be a serial killer in BC, but it's weird that only feet are washing ashore. Where are the other parts..

Just your average every day run of the mill nana here!!!

Were metric, so it puts an entirely different hue on the question. In fact, Hugh has changed the question entirely to:

'What shoe size are these single foot feet that keep washing up in BC?'

Meanwhile, my question is: 'if they feet keep washing up, why do they athlete's feet?'

It's a conundrum indeed, but with words like pedomotivity, a classic dear fellow, I'm sure the mystery will be solved in due course!

Pull ma finger.........

Really? Just the feet? No other body parts?

That's just creepy...

...the geeky gal in me wants to see whether there is a correlation to perhaps the Fukishima tsunami...or similar current patterns from the migrant crisis...could they be? How long would it take a foot to float across the pacific...and from where?

Guess now you know why my blog is called Curious Minds...lol...all the questions...the possible answers!!
