It Made Me Clench My Fingernails

The Channel Four continuity announcer before Derren Brown today promised that tonight's would be "the most uncomfortable Peep Show yet". In fact, he said it would be "toe-cringingly funny".

That does sound uncomfortable.

...

I honestly, now that I come to think of it, don't really know what specifically cringing is, but surely you curl your toes. That's the saying.

Well cring means "to shrink, bend, or crouch" so I suppose it works, in a really absurd way.
