    As a matter of fact, I do seem to injure my shins a lot, but it always seems to be one item in particular that does it. For now I just turn it around so the dangerous protrusion isn’t toward where I walk, but sooner or later that thing has got to go.

    Actually, the Malvolio usage of them would work quite well. They could probably be recycled for a jester/fool costume in another production…

    If you’ve got nice legs you can get away with anything.
