This is weird. In the 90's I was sitting at a desk discussing some work with a colleague. He answered the 'phone and was obviously asked to identify himself. He then listened for a few minutes, then put the 'phone down.

He was obviously not quite himself as he said "They've found a foot" as if I'd know what he was talking about.

It turned out that his father had gone missing some months before - a suspected suicide. A foot had been found in a trainer on a beach somewhere in the northeast. DNA had identified it as being his father's.

Have you ever seen the film Funny Bones? My favourite film. There's a scene in that where a single foot washes up on Blackpool beach. (Then a kid picks it up and chases people with it)

Don't forget that episode of Psych where they find a foot... belonging to a football kicker...

Man, that show had a laugh with the detective trope :)
