Yes, this is what happened. My friend Dawn was absolutely mortified that Curtis was talking about “Nigger Toes” and could not get him to shut up for the life of her. So he’s going on for like 15 minutes, asking everyone about their experiences with “Nigger Toes” and Dawn’s cringing, and I’m stone quiet the entire time. Finally he asks me what I called them, and I said, “We just called them ‘Toes’.” If I had another panel it would be everyone else falling on the floor laughing, which is what we did.

I had never heard of the phrase until then, although I did have Brazil nuts before.
