Well i’m not one to brag, but the words donkey & dick do appear to be relavent here. I used to be such a shy boy, mommy will be pleased XD

I would select a non-visible tail, like I have…I cannot fathom walking around with a tail, anymore than I can imagine walking (or sitting) with a package.

It’d be like a peacock’s tail.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir I could totally see that.

I want a leopard’s tail. I don’t have pros and cons, I just think it would be cool.

A prehensile tail. I would much rather have a third hand instead of a tail that simply swooshes around.

A lizard’s tail.
Grab it and it will fall off. It doesn’t get any better than that.;)

A pig’s tail. They are short and curly and probably the least likely to get in the way when using a restroom.

FYI…we all had tails when in the embryonic stage of development. The tail usually gets absorbed as development continues. Note the word ‘usually’. There was a woman in our hometown named Bee that claimed to have a tail. She let the father of a friend feel it tucked in the back of her pants leg. If you do an internet search for photos of human tails, you can see what they look like.

I’d have a dog’s tail. There is absolutely nothing happier looking than a panting dog, wagging his tail.

I would want to have a beaver tail. It would help me with personal space issues and hit people who enter my bubble.

A mountain lion’s. A bit less bulky than the fox tail I might otherwise prefer, and good for lashing when I get mad!

I’m with @jaytkay . Prehensile is the way to go. How often do you find you could use a third hand to carry things or to turn a door knob when the other two hands are full. You could hug your SO and still have a third to tease with. Wow. This could be a LONG list.

I’ll have the devil’s tail so religious zealots will go nuts trying to exorcise me!

I want a cat’s tail that I can whip around when I’m pissed off so people know to leave me alone…or that I can move just the tip of so that if I’m starting to get annoyed, people can have fair warning…

Hrm, I have two ideals.

In the first, I have a tail because I am semi-aquatic. Should that be the case, I’d want something powerful enough to really enhance my swim speed, but sleek enough to still look trendy. And with a nice flashy tail fin.

In the second case, it’s because I am primate like, in which I’d want a tail that was long, dextrous and strong enough to support me like an arm. You know, for when I’m climbing trees with my tail.

@noelleptc I could rock a dolphin tail. So long as it would be capable of that trick where I swim backwards using only my tail and clap my flippers :D

@noelleptc At which point I would thank you for all the fish before saying so long, flying off into the upper atmosphere.

Monkey tail. I’m traveling by tree.

jaytkay's avatar

You should have a dolphin tail. Those are way trendy.

Shark. There’s the shark option, too.

I am really enjoying these answers!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@tinyfaery Brilliant! I wish I had thought of that.

Berserker's avatar

@mazingerz88 Lol nice. XD

I’d want some big ass crocodile tail so I could violently wave it around and smash shit, and get people at the grocery store to get the hell out my way!

ddude1116's avatar

I’d want a capuchin tail sized proportionally to myself. Some fur’d be nice to go along with it… I love tiny monkeys, they’re just adorable…..

Berserker's avatar

Looking up ’‘human tails’’ on Google, and three quarters of what I get is a bunch of anime crap? XD

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@Symbeline Yeah, I noticed that, too. I don’t get the anime stuff showing up and wasn’t willing to check into why.

Berserker's avatar

Not really wanting to find out, myself. XD

ddude1116's avatar

@Symbeline like Dragonball..?!

Berserker's avatar

…I’m ashamed.

I like Dragon Ball Z. ..

But nah I just got a bunch of chicks with cat ears and tails, and dudes with big fluffy fox tails. The hell.

lol A few years ago I read an article by someone who clicked on the Wikipedia “random” page button repeatedly for an hour and claimed that Wikipedia must be 80% anime

rooeytoo's avatar

I want a roo tail (what elsee would you expect from rooey!!!) They can lean on them to rest when they are tired and when they are going full speed, it balances and pushes them off so they can go like the wind!

Otherwise I go with @yankeetooter – I love that idea, swish my tail around and people would leave me alone!!! GA & GQ
