  1. Flubbing.

  2. I would have thought they’d be the ones wondering if we steel-toe-capped shoe wearing folk also had a dozen related words that described the various ways in which toes could be hurt by unwanted terrestrial encounters.

    “What? You only have one word? ‘Stub’? Sheesh. That’s sad.”

  3. Nice point, Crosbie.

    I think our word for stubbing our toe is actually “Ow!”

  4. Actually, all cultures do have such a word, and strangely enough it is the SAME word in all cultures –WDWISTPOT.

    Loosely translated, it means Why Don’t We Invent Something To Protect Our Toes

  5. … as you noted, “ouch”. I suspect that there’s a similar word in all different cultures’ languages.

  6. hmm.. thank you very much. usefull information

  7. Super. It took almost a day to find this info. Thanks! Good job. :)
