A Leg Up

Beatrix: >Ah< This certainly hits the spot!
Barbara: Rather!

Logan: There they are. Let's go ask them.
Frederick: Are you sure we should? It might seem a bit impertinent.
Logan: You've always wondered about it.  The only way to find out is to ask!

Barbara: What's up, boys?
Logan: Could we ask you a question?
Beatrix: Sure! Ask away...

Logan: Go ahead, Frederick.  Ask them.
Frederick: Me?!?
Barbara: Would you like a glass of lemonade first to loosen you up?

Frederick: Ahem, well, ah, we couldn't help noticing that 
you Gotz girls all have one leg that's longer than the other.
Beatrix: Everyone does, you know.

Logan: Yeah, but all you girls have one leg that's waaaaay longer than the other.
Frederick: > Ok, you didn't need to emphasize it like that! <

Barbara: No offense taken, dearie.  There's actually a very logical explanation!
Beatrix: Yes, you see our ancestors are from Switzerland, land of the Alps.
By having one longer leg, we're able to stand on the side of a mountain without falling over.

Frederick: You don't say?!?
Logan: Wow.  That's...that's actually pretty brilliant.

Barbara: Yes, it is, isn't it?
Beatrix: We don't like to boast, but we do consider ourselves to be rather highly evolved.

Barbara: Join us for some lemonade, and we'll lay some more amazing facts on you!

Also sass.....that one leg longer business also creates a very sassy stance. Kinda cute, kinda sassy, ya know. Between the mountain climbing and sass-factor, this really is an evolutionary breakthrough!

LOL Well said girls. Those cheeky lads asking you about your legs!

Love this one, Steve! Laugh out loud funny!
Do you know Bagpuss? There's a wonderful episode from the 70s about the haggis living in the Scottish highlands with legs on one side longer than the other...

you're the best storyteller!

Thank you Anonymous! I had never heard of Bagpuss (strange because Daddy John and I love all things 1970's & British), so a little investigation was in order. I watched some of the episodes on YouTube , and found them absolutely charming!
