"They have strong and paddle-like forelegs"

Also, if you regularly see “dongs” with eyes, You’ve been reading too much Philip K…

My next band will now be called: Dongs of the Desert

When do they stop being “paddle-like forelegs” and become paddles?

The dugongs would like to know.

And it seems to drawn to holes.

What kind of music will you play?

That works, if you’re covering only punk and metal songs.

That goes without saying.

And a quick search shows it’s been done.

You could probably get Josh Homme to join, or is that too on the err… nose?

I actually didn’t know much about the guy but after a quick skim of his Wiki my pretend band is going to pass on that bro.

There are legless lizards in (parts of) America too.

Here in the UK, the most common reptile is a legless lizard.
