HQ 10.2:  The verbs {nan} "use the fourth toe" and {nan} "gouge" are probably etymologically related, since {nan} is used to refer to a particularly effective martial arts kick.

PUN: 
"This little piggy had NONE and cried 'WEE, WEE, WEE' all the way home."

Related vocabulary:

nanwI'  	chisel (n)
nan  		gouge (v)

mI' 		do martial arts movements (v)
pup 		kick (v)

For review, the other "toe verbs" are:

mar  		use the big (i.e. first) toe
Hom  		use the second toe
roS  		use the third toe
Qay'  	use the little (i.e. fifth) toe
