What it’s Like to be a Lefty, as Told by Disney Characters

In days of yore, being left handed was considered a curse, punishable by having your hand chopped off–or at least being forced to become a righty. But now we are proud of our left-handedness and shout “huzzah” from the roof tops, “huzzah, we are left handed! Hear us roar!” The life of lefty comes with gifts and curses, to be sure. Today, we chronicle them for posterity, and with the help of our favorite Disney characters.
