Lulu’s Life Tips: You Don’t Need To Answer Questions

Hello friendlies! Lulu here, with another life tip! This time, it’s about answering questions. Or, more accurately, accusations disguised as questions. And the tip is: You don’t have to do it. Sometimes you can just wait and the situation will resolve itself without your having to admit or deny anything. This is sometimes called “pulling the Fifth”. Here’s an example:

Now, I will note that this approach to handling interrogations is easier to pull off if you’re furry and cute and/or you have a fluffy belly.

Charlee: “What do you mean, ‘furry and cute AND/OR you have a fluffy belly’?”
Chaplin: “Yeah, who or what are you thinking of that’s NOT furry and cute but still has a fluffy belly?”
Lulu: “Well, for starters, there’s—”
Mouse: “Not. Another. Word.”

But even if you’re neither furry nor cute nor in possession of a fluffy belly, you still have the right not to incriminate yourself by answering questions like “Have you been eating paper?” or “How did you get hold of that shoe?” or “Do you really need to dig another hole in the yard right there?” Indeed, oftentimes these questions are purely rhetorical anyway; the person asking them does not expect you to answer. Just lie there and wag your tail. And if you haven’t got a tail, you’re not furry, you’re not cute, and you haven’t got a fluffy belly, you may want to consider asking for a lawyer.

Scrooge: “Or just keep a lawyer on retainer and with you at all times.”
Lulu: “Sort of like a pet!”

This is Lulu, rolling over and out!
