Siam: Peggy's Beautiful Tankles


Peggy often had a sore throat, and Kenneth would ask her to open her mouth so that he could see her beautiful tonsils. One day the Landons had guests and Peggy was trying to entertain them. Suddenly she realized that she had something special to show the guests: her beautiful "tankles." The visitors, of course, were nonplussed about it.
