- Doctor, I’m really worried about this. My shadow is too small. Is there anything you can do for me?
- We could try a shadow enlargement, but sometimes the shadows do get rather large and threatening. It might scare people.
- What about adding a second shadow, same size as this?
- And have two small shadows?
- Yes, I get awfully lonely sometimes.
- It could be done, but we’d have to find a donor.
- How about a nice girl’s shadow?
- Hmmm. Might be interesting, if the two shadows – get along.
