Congratulation on your purchase of a brand new ligger! If handled properly, your lizardman will give years of valuable, if reluctant, service.>INSTALL YOUR LIGGER
You should install your ligger differently according to whether you have purchased the field or house model. Field liggers work best in a serial configuration, i.e. chained together. Chain your ligger to another ligger immediately after unpacking it, and don't even think about taking that chain off, ever. Many liggers start singing as soon as you put a chain on them. This habit can usually be thrashed out of them if nipped in the bud. House liggers work best as standalone units, but should be hobbled or hamstrung to prevent attempts at escape. At this stage, your ligger can also be given a name. Most owners use the same names over and over, since liggers become confused by too much data. Rufus, Remus, Toby, Carlton, Hey-You!-Yes-you!, Yeller, and Sambo are all effective names for your new buck ligger. If your ligger is a ho, it should be called Latrelle, L'Tanya, or Jemima. Some owners call their ligger hoes Latrine for a joke. Pearl, Blossom, and Star are also righteous names for ligger hoes. These names go straight over your ligger's head, by the way.>CONFIGURE YOUR LIGGER
Owing to a design error, your ligger comes equipped with a tongue and vocal chords. Most liggers can master only a few basic human phrases with this apparatus – "not for abuse" being the most popular. However, others make barking, yelping, yapping noises and appear to be in some pain, so you should probably call a vet and have him remove your ligger's tongue. Once de-tongued your ligger will be a lot happier - at least, you won't hear it complaining anywhere near as much. Liggers have nothing interesting to say, anyway. Many owners also castrate their liggers for health reasons (yours, mine, and that of women, not the ligger's). This is strongly recommended, and frankly, it's a mystery why this is not done on the boat.
