The Story of
Most people think that there are two types of Legheads! Those being the short legged Leghead and the long legged Leghead. This is not so! Many people also believe that the short legged Legheads spend most of their lives just sitting in one spot because their legs are far too short for them to walk on. This is also not true! There is only one type of Leghead and that is the Short AND Long Legged Leghead....The reason for this is you will never guess....Plum Puddings!
Legheads just love them. They eat very big Plum Puddings all of the year round and of course as you know a true and traditional Plum Pudding is full of silver coins, dried fruit, flour and lots of other "heavy" things. A Leghead will eat up to six Plum Puddings in one sitting, filling its stomach to overflowing and making its body extremely heavy. The body of the Leghead slowly slides down its legs. The only thing stopping its body sliding right off and rolling away is its feet! So you can always tell when Legheads have been eating Plum Puddings because they appear to be just sitting on their feet! They cannot move and sometimes it takes days for their weight to go down....but of course their body is still stuck around their feet! Guess what they do....they climb a tree and hook their feet onto a strong branch and start swinging backwards and forwards, swinging until their body eventually slides back up their legs!
Many people think that the expression "you're totally legless" originated from the sight of these strange creatures all sitting around after a big meal of Plum Puddings!
