Eat your carrots, kids!

When I was six years old, I heard that if you ate lots and lots of carrots the bottoms of your feet could turn orange from the beta carotene. So I ate lots and lots of carrots. I remember the moment when I was at a friend's house playing and I checked the bottom of my feet, and sure enough, they had an orange tinge. Willie Wonka freakiness.
