A lot of things can go wrong when you get a fake tan, but there's much more potential for trouble when you don't even know you are getting one.

That's what happened to one poor guy who took off his sock and discovered in horror that his foot was severely discolored. 

Fearing disease and a need for amputation, he told his wife, who let him know she had borrowed one of his socks to apply her fake tan and forgot to tell him. 

Thought my foot was falling off .....Turns out my bloody Mrs used me sock for her fake tan....

At least he knows what to get her for the holidays - a tanning mitt.
