Big Ears

There’s something funny about clever people’s heads.

Mostly, it’s their ears.

Their ears are quite special.

They look fairly normal while being transported around town or having a shower.

But as soon as they enter into a discussion, something magical happens…

Their ears grow.

Slowly but surely, their lug holes unfurl and expand, a peacock’s tail of inexplicably rigid flesh shivering out behind their heads.

They catch all the words.

Every single one.

Were these people smart before they had big ears?

Or did having big ears make them smart?
