Sunday Rest: Word Not To Use Today: furkid.

This word means to do with furks, right?

Right. 

So...er...what is a furk, exactly?

Um...

All right, furkid must mean something else, then.

It's actually one of these:

beagle puppy

or these:



or these:

Do you get it?

Fur...kid. 

Ouch!

Furkid is a word used mostly in the USA. I can see, as they say, where they're coming from.

But I jolly well hope they're not coming here.

Word Not To Use Today: furkid. That is, kid that's furry. I find this whole idea jolly creepy and dubious, myself. Still, apparently some of the animal rights people like it.

Personally, though, I think that the chief right of any animal is that it should be allowed to be an animal.
