Not exactly sure but you have to sing

This little piggy went to market;
This little piggy stayed at home;
This little piggy had roast beef;
And this little piggy had none;
This little piggy said, "Wee, wee, wee! all the way home!"

You have to. It's the rules!

Take a long shower or bath. It will soften 'em right up.

Then chew them off.
Best served with a soft aged cheese and a sweet white wine.

Don't cut 'em. They'll curl under eventually.

Actually in all seriousness, do not cut them at the edges, otherwise the nail might grow into the edges of the skin.

I prefer straight across. Slight BUFFING, and a lovely little bit of parafin dip. Then the toes and I go out for UNI and SAKI.

Imagine going to a podiatrist and being told you have "claw toes." Yeah, that's right. Friggin' claw toes. Medical term. I've got long, long toes that bend towards the ground. Toenails are a nightmare. I count on ingrown nails and bruising whenever I go hiking.

<---serious hammer time in his shoes.
