Ah, someone beat me to it! I’ve been planning to start this thread for a while, but never bothered hurrying myself up because I figured, no-one else is that much of a nutcase.
Clearly, I was wrong.
For myself, I’d have a black tail, a long, thick, fluffy one, sort of the same shape as a German Shepherd’s tail. Serves no purpose except looking pretty. Which is probably an accurate description of me as a whole.
Buck the Diver - please tell me to go away if you don’t want your thread hijacked, but as well as asking people what kind of tail they’d have, my thread was going to involve speculations on things about our society that would be different if humans had tails. I was thinking about holes in the backs of chairs and in the backs of pairs of pants, but nothing else sprung to mind.
It’s a toss up between Nightcrawler’s tail or a crocodile tail for swimming and thwacking annoying things. This sort of reminds me of a Dr. Seuess story where this kid imagines what it would be like if he had different animal parts. Fasion-wise, kilts would be popular and the phrase “nice piece of tail” would be literal.
Prehensile flesh colored with a bunch of wicked tatoos on it. I’d also add on a metal spearhead for effect. It would be another arm and a backscratcher. It would be great for my daily routine if I could grab stuff behind me with it.
Tails are sweet.
