I wonder if this is the work of the nefarious Hobblin' Goblin.
2008-02-15 07:18:57 PM  
I just lost the game.

I am confused. It seems elementary to me that the game is 3 foots.

2008-02-15 07:22:24 PM  
a feet of strength ...
2008-02-15 07:22:57 PM  
What we have here is someone REALLY obsessed with the hokey pokey.

Maybe since it's 3 feet, we should alert Scotland Yard.
2008-02-15 07:25:36 PM  
Meh. Just look for one-legged thieves stealing only the Left shoe from displays.
2008-02-15 07:25:52 PM  
I'm wondering if they can narrow down where and when the shoes were sold. If the bodies were dumped in a low-oxygen zone then they might be years old instead of months old.

LOL i love the dexter references. Such an amazing show
2008-02-15 07:26:51 PM  
So what's left?
2008-02-15 07:26:54 PM  
The game is afoot would have been a better reference if it was Connery.

Oldiron_79: did someone say Holmes?

The one in the middle wasn't a leg.
2008-02-15 07:27:16 PM  
Just find the man with three left feet.

/I just blew your mind I bet.

Ripping lame jokes off CSI?
2008-02-15 07:27:42 PM  
Sounds like a bunch of hokey pokeyus around there.
2008-02-15 07:28:51 PM  
They couldn't have floated from europe because then they would be a meter not 3 feet.

uptonogood: a feet of strength ...

what we need is strength of feet!
2008-02-15 07:29:18 PM  
Crap! Now we have to buy a new pair of shoes!
2008-02-15 07:29:34 PM  
Arr! Tis a sure sign of pirates! Their peg legs will be hobbling along the streets of Victoria soon, as they plunder and pillage!
2008-02-15 07:29:53 PM  
Find out if there was a sore loser at the local 1 legged dude ass kicking contest.

3 rights don`t make a left.

Damn immigrants. Trying to sneak into Canada one limb at a time.

Looks like it's two steps forwards, and one step back

The criminal is throwing the detectives off the trail. They should not look for feet they should look for a baby !

1= foot

2= feet

3= feetus

subby got it almost right.

"The foot is kind of game"

You could have gone there.

The evidence is a puzzle

- left is often associated with west from cartesian mapping
- 3 feet is 1 yard

> west yard

- if you take the day number when each foot was found you get six digits (aug 20, aug 26, feb 14)
- take 3 for latitude, 3 for longitude
- you end up with the American consulate in Colombia
- if you make the coordinates both negative, you get an unnamed ghost city in Iran

> Colombia and Iran are 2 of the worlds biggest drug exporters and they are related to a west yard

- there was an anti-narcotics agreement negotiated in 1971 where the signing took place at the Petit Genieve restaurant in Paris, France. However since the weather was nice, they moved out into the western yard belonging to the restaurant (like its patio)
- that same year, the Pope visited that restaurant and made an announcement approving of dropping the gold standard. It was later learned that the Catholic church made billions from shorting gold that year

> This is bigger than a simple drug deal

- Tom Hanks was in paris giving a lecture...

Hey wait doesn't Canada use the metric system, so wouldn't this be 0.9144 meters turn up?

Well played, sir. Well played indeed.

All the corny jokes, worthy only of a fake news site like The Bunion.
