No wonder you can get so much done in one day, you've got five hands!  Not
only that, but you are efficiently enumerating them with words rather than
numbers, which, as we all know, is easier and faster to reference as a
human than numbers.  Having 25 fingers must have made math more difficult
for you with base 10, though...

Beside the obvious "Pearson's Puppeteer" ref's in James' post, I thought
most here had watched a certain play, "Fiddler on the Roof" to wit?
Heh!

You meant "Moties" didn't you :-) ?
(same writer, different series).

Now there's a story - Moties meet Kzinti! (or Puppeteers)

Pretty sure the gripping hand only has three fingers.
