LaVonna notes:
"To be honest, they look more like feet (there are two)
than a base."

Good point -- I'm not familiar with the look of the
thing -- I was just suggesting a possible alternative
that would avoid confusion with human feet. Maybe the
best thing to do with that example is just laugh, and
realize that really, most people _will_ understand what
is meant.

One the "Be sure" issue brought up in a previous message
-- I was simply mimicking the previous person's
phrasing. My point was "base" not "be sure". No big
deal -- I just wanted to mention.
