The Best Word Ever!

Multiple Choice:

Porcupette is:
a) a tool used in medical laboratories
b) a French pork dish
c) a made-up word
d) a baby porcupine

Correct answer: d. A baby porcupine is called a porcupette. Is that the best word ever? Or at least for today?
Flying scientific factoid: Baby porcupines are born with quills but they are soft and harden as they age. Kind of like humans isn't it?

  1. Learned something new again - and that is a great word! So true about babies being soft and that humans tend to get a little more hard as we "grow up". Wonder what the world would be like if we all stayed baby-soft?
