What the heck is the point of the little toe, toenail?

Really, c’mon it’s so little and tiny. What the heck does it really do?

Protects your little toe from getting mashified.

Other than that it just lays around the house and watches disney channel.

I don’t think the little toe is the one that goes to market, I think it goes, “Wee wee wee” all the way home…

The Vulcan Science Directorate has determined that it is a remnant from the time when the foot was used to grab things and the digits of the foot were bigger, where it served as structural support for the tip of the toes.

If you ever find a baby dragon, you can sever it off to feed to said dragon.

When you lose yours, you will find out how much it helps with your balance.

@ragingloli
You mean that you never pick things up with your feet?

The function of your little toe is to help you maintain your balance. The function of its toenail is to offer the appendage some grade protection from a rough world.

Your little toe.

I believe it assists us with balance. Anyway, your foot would look strange without it.

@Zen_Again I resent your claiming to speak for me.

Signed,
Your little toenail

PS: I am also offended by the question.
