“The main function of the little toe is to make sure that all the furniture is in place”

"The main function of the little toe on your foot is to make sure that all the furniture in the house is in place”—another way of saying that the toe often bumps into the furniture—is a saying that has been printed on many images.

“I have come to the conclusion that the only function of the little toe, is to stumble with the furniture and give you pain and anger” was posted on Twitter by \m/™ on September 9, 2011. “Thoroughly convinced that the only evolutionary function of the little toe is to find the legs of furniture. #fourletterwords” was posted on Twitter by Brian K on June 12, 2012.

“The main function of the little toe on your foot is to make sure that all the furniture in the house is in place” was posted on Twitter by Sparkle Sparkles (and others) on August 25, 2018. The saying probably originated from an image.

“The shinbone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room” is a similar saying.

This sentence made me laugh out loud. “The main function of the little toe is to make sure that all the furniture in the house is in place.”

Ouch, this one hurt. How many times have we stubbed our toe on the footstool, the table leg, or the magazine rack! You would think we would learn not to go barefoot in the house. I solved the footstool problem. I got rid of it and replaced it with a lift chair
