it looks like a mix between a porcupine and a hedgehog

This is getting very confusing!The World Book Dictionary identifies the hedgehog as: <i>1) the porcupine of America; 2) any of a group of small European or Western Asian insect-eating mammals that have spines on their back.</i> It also shows a drawing of an animal with very short quills. It then identifies a porcupine as: <i>any of several rodents covered with quills or spines, as in the North American porcupine with short quills, or the European porcupine with long quills.</i> It shows a drawing of a long-quilled animal that looks just like Spiny Norman. Is Spiny Norman really a porcupine and not a hedgehog, or is he both? And when is a bee not a bee?<hr noshade size="1">

If you don't mind my saying so, you're badly in need of an expensive course of psychiatric treatment.

The African porcupine I recall has barbs on its quills.The North Americann does not. Do not attempt to kiss either. I am rather rusty on the subject as to whether whick has barbed quills.Just stay away.

Do not regard going "out there" as a picnic. I was out there eaten alive by insects.Racoons in my larders. Government people chacking upon you every hour for liquor.
No.Stay home.Friends and family are all you need.

mr.radbag found a bee in the bathroom today. Wonder if its name was Eric? I asked him if it was a half-a-bee. He wasn't sure -- he just squashed it. jr.radbag was distressed at the thought that Eric may be no more. (Or is it <i>bee</i> no more?)<hr noshade size="1">

First Pepperpot: What's that on the television then?

Second Pepperpot: Looks like a penguin.

On the TV set there is indeed a penguin. It sits contentedly looking at them in a stuffed sort of way. There is nothing on the screen.

First Pepperpot: No, no, no, I didn't mean what's on the television set, I meant what program.

Second Pepperpot: Oh.

Second Pepperpot: It's funny that penguin being there innit? What's it doing there?

First Pepperpot: Standing.

Second Pepperpot: I can see that!

First Pepperpot: If it lays an egg, it will fall down the back of the television set.

Second Pepperpot: We'll have to watch that. Unless it's a male.

First Pepperpot: Ooh, I never thought of that.

Second Pepperpot: Yes, looks fairly butch.

First Pepperpot: Per'aps it's from next door.

Second Pepperpot: Penguins don't come from next door, they come from the Antarctic.

First Pepperpot: Burma.

Second Pepperpot: Why did say Burma?

First Pepperpot: I panicked.

Second Pepperpot: Oh. Perhaps it's from the zoo.

First Pepperpot: Which zoo?

Second Pepperpot: How should I know which zoo? I'm not Doctor bloody Bernowski.

First Pepperpot: How does Doctor Bernowski know which zoo it came from?

Second Pepperpot: He knows everything.

First Pepperpot: Oooh, I wouldn't like that, that'd take all the mystery out of life. Anyway, if it came from the zoo, it would have 'property of the zoo' stamped on it.

Second Pepperpot: No it wouldn't. They don't stamp animals 'property of the zoo'. You can't stamp a huge lion.

First Pepperpot: They stamp them when they're small.

Second Pepperpot: What happens when they molt?

First Pepperpot: Lions don't molt.

Second Pepperpot: No, but penguins do. There, I've run rings around you logically.

First Pepperpot: Oh, intercourse the penguin.

On the TV screen there now appears an announcer.

TV Announcer: It's just gone 8 o'clock and time for the penguin on top of your television set to explode.

First Pepperpot: How did he know that was going to happen?!

TV Announcer: It was an inspired guess. And now...
