Why did the three legged goth go for a swim?

I need a punchline for this feedline. Can you help?
Any style is good, but it should make some kind of sense.

Do you have any idea how rare it is to find a bathing suit with three leg openings...

Much less in black?

They got tired of kicking the bucket.

(This works better if the question part is revised to "Why did the goth with three legs go for a swim?"):

Because there's a quiet little island in the middle of the lake, and when your Hot Topic coffin backpack is stuffed full of three cheerleader legs you gotta bury 'em somewhere.

They were pushed.

It's the only way to get the corset and boots off.

The DJ started playing Spice Girls.

So they could float on their back and look like a pentagram.

Doesn't really invoke the three-legged bit but:

They got bored in the flat field.

They were trying to slow dive.

They heard Marian calling across the water, across the wave.

To get away from the four-legged cheerleader.

This works better if the feedline can be "Why did the three-legged goth go for a swim in the pond?"

He heard the Swans were there and wanted to return their bootleg.
