`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

A corny issue.

For the sake of those who had suffered long enough in silence... i shall put a few cues here on how to get rid of this corny situation once and for all, pun intended!

Corny Solution A
Wait for it to go off. This could probably take awhile, from a few months to a few years (i kid you not) but you could save the trouble of spending any MAHNAY. By then however, all you could think of is you should spend a lil time and effort and some $$$ to get rid of the darn FUDGERING corn. You wouldn't want to do that.

trust me, i did.

Corny Solution B
Get yourself a corn plaster from one of those handy 24/7 pharmacies.
Apply it as instructed
(aka place plaster with round spongy thinger directly on top of corn, surrounding it. )
After noticing that your skin is hardened and peeling (after a day or more from application) proceed to cutting and digging the skin around it till it's you reach a white center part and dig that out. Dip feet into warm water beforehand so it's easier to snip at it. Continue this process everyday until everything is cleared.

lHurts like Fudging Helll. This method is ineffective for me, but whatever.
it might work for you.
Most people i know recommends it.

My skin is however, extra thick and very very stubborn.

Corny Solution C
Aloe Vera. Snip a piece of Aloe Vera leaf off your mom's favourite "tong sui" plant, and apply exposed area (the wet wet one la) onto affected area on foot.
Never tried it, it's traditional.
Apparently it works. Maybe after, you could make yourself some nice HK feet tongsui.. Yummm..

Corny Solution D
Purchase Duofilm (Or hydrochloric acid, according to a friend) from the pharmacy. External use only, please do not swallow unless you're planning on taking your own life, if that's the case then feel free to do so (but you didn't hear it from me of course). Apply around infected area and a drip or two ON corn. Chant some self healing mantra, sleep it off and voila!
To speed process, PEEL AND CUT THE DWANG THING OUT. =)

again, pain factor remains unavoidable. Still, it's better than having that constant piercing pain. If you've had it, you would know it. ♥

"For pen is mightier then one's sword
For wounds hurts less then a word and a thought
And a cut that gnaws the soul, the heart
Echoes on, lingered after all has part."
