Sad death of a thumbnail
« on: December 15, 2007, 07:01:13 PM »
I have been growing a nice set of Coffin Joe nails on my left hand.  On Thursday, tragedy struck.  i broke the thumbnail.  It was a hard pill to swallow, but I trimmed what was left and filed it down.  Now I have an incomplete set of four nails.  I do not like the look of it.



So the question is, should I cut the other four or keep them?  I lean toward cutting them.  I abhor inconsistency.  That missing nail ruins the whole thing.

Raymond, your left hand has betrayed your ambitions and dreams. I say cut the whole damn hand off.

If you can grow out finger nails like that, all I can say is cut them off and get a real job.

I have one of those media jobs where you can get away with being a fruitcake.  In fact, you kind of have to be a fruitcake to put up with long hours, high pressure and low pay.  Anyway, it sounds like the consensus is to cut them.  Terry went a step further, advising that I cut off the entire hand.  That is one option, but it has a downside.  It would hurt and make a bloody mess.  Also, the hand would not grow back.  The nails would.  So I see a lot of downside and no upside to cutting off the hand.  I'm sorry Terry, but I will have to discard your advice.

  Hmmmm, if you are not adverse to it, you a false nail till that one grows back.  That's far to much work to throw away.  The fact that you have a job that lets you do something like this is even better.

      Personally, I can't abide actual long fingernails---they are so high maintenence and when you work with your hands a lot, like I do, they're just a bloody bother to keep clean, smooth & nice.
Cut the little buggers off!
You can always find "Lee Press-On Claws" at the local Walgreens, Rite-Aid or other fine stores.

Perhaps you can ask Sandy Claws for some new nails for Christmas.

Ah, but your mistaken Raymond! After you dismember the hand, you could report it to your insurance company as an accident. Just say you lopped it off when cutting some iceberg lettuce. They send you big money for said claim, and you find yourself with a large amount of spending power! All those toys that you've drooled over on eBay could finally be yours! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

Perfect for a vegan! And I'm sure, that, your fruitcake job is made of entirely organic ingredients!

Doen't he always? That's why he's our Fearless Larder... er, LEADER!

No hand can grow a back, unless, it's the back o' the hand! Now, if you were a Lower-Life-Form, like Moi, why, shucks, 'twouldn't be no problem, regrowing a limb... that's how I met SHIRLEY MacLAINE... HEY! RAYMOND! If I were to bite you, then, you'd become a WEREWOLF, like Moi, and, be able to regenerate, as well as degenerate!
```````````````````````````````

 The nails would.
*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Would what?! Grow a BACK?! Great! Then, the nails will never be lonely; they'll always have something to scratch...
``````````````````````````````

So I see a lot of downside and no upside to cutting off the hand.

... No! RAYMOND, save his advice, in case you, someday, need a spare... or, a fourth, to play bridge... of course, you can cross that bridge, when you come to it... just don't cross TERRY, use WOLFS-BANE {disguised as a WONKA Bar} &, A SILVER STAKE, instead!
