[ The next day...]
Beaver is greeting Steve, who is looking at his behind, having NO TAIL.
Beaver: "Morning Steve! How's the tail?"
Steve: "Maybe it will grow back tomorrow...?"
Beaver and Steve are looking at Steve's amputated tail lying on the floor. There are flies around it.
Beaver: "Oh gross - your old tail is still lying around! I thought I told you to always throw away unwanted body parts? Remember what happened with your appendix?"
Steve: "But... I did throw the tail away..."
Beaver picks up Steve's old tail. Steve tries to look as innocent as possible.
Beaver: "Now Steve, it's not nice to tell lies..."
Steve: "But Beaver..!"
Beaver: "Are you trying to tell me that your tail climbed out of the bin all by itself?..."
The tail WRIGGLE!s in Beaver's hands. Both Beaver and Steve look surprised.
Close up on Steve's tail, which now resembles a miniature Steve. Beaver looks puzzled.
Beaver: "Hmm...I'm not sure if you're growinga new tail Steve..."
Steve's tail: "Mrrfffl..."
Beaver: "But I think your tail might be growing a new you... What shall we do with it...?"
Beaver is holding Steve's tail.
Beaver: "And no Steve, we can't eat it."
Steve: (holding a knife and a fork) "What makes you think I was going to suggest that?"
[To be Contd.]
- Steve will eat anything.
- After old tails are left lying around, flies will become attracted to it.
- Steve has had his appendix taken out.
- Apparently, it's not only possible for lizards to regrow lost bodyparts, but at least their tails are capable of growing a new lizard.
