    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.

    Lanky is also an accurate description.

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

    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”.

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

    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

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

    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.
