    I don’t really know what I am.

    I guess I’ve identified as a hare before.

    Josiah the Ferret Stick?

    Heh, I’m too gangly.

    When I read “gangly”, I immediately thought of the Buttercream Gang.

    According to Merriam-Webster, “gangly” means: tall, thin, and awkward.

    Josiah the Skinny Ferret Stick. Or Josiah the Parrot Stick. Idk

    Now that I think about it, why doesn’t gangly refer to gangs? That would make more sense.

    I just looked up the origin of “gangly”: it’s derived from “gangling”, which is an old word meaning “lanky”. Both “gang” and “gangling” have origins in old words that meant “go”. “Gang” came first, as it was a group of people who would go together, and “gangling” came from “gangrel”, which meant “a wandering beggar” [or “a beggar who goes about”]. Beggars that are able to travel from place to place tend to be tall, thin, and awkward, which is how “gangly” got its meaning.

    Perhaps this is why “gangster” is sometimes used as an adjective for gangs.

    Oh, that makes sense. Interesting.

    Lanky is also an accurate description.

    I googled “lanky animal”, and the first picture result was of a baby giraffe gaining its bearings.

    Heh, my neck isn’t THAT long. 😀

    Wouldn’t a carrot stick be considered to have a long neck? I’m not sure what better animal could be contrived to describe someone who identifies as “lanky”.

    I have an abnormally long neck… Also my profile picture is a giraffe… But my patronus is a hedgehog… And I’d rather be a wolf… So idk what I am…

    Mason, if you want to be a wolf, then Beowulf.

    Awkward Potato, that was brilliant! But on this thread, where we pretend to be animals, I feel like saying this to Masøn:

    #32872

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Hahahahaha

    #32892

    Awkward Potato

    I wonder if one could teach a giraffe to clap…

    #32896

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    That is a good question.

    I’d like to teach a giraffe to clap
    With perfect coordination
    I’d like to play my kazoo to it
    And receive a standing ovation

    #32915

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Was that a parody of “I’d like to teach the world to sing?”

    #32926

    That’s what I was thinking of when I wrote it, but I didn’t want to write a full parody and hold myself to rhyme & meter, so I just posted the one verse here.

    #32927

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    Yep.
