Now, anyone who has ever had to take their inquisitive dog to the vet with a nose full of porcupine quills, or anyone who has foolishly tried to pick up a porcupine, knows that these little devils can hurt! Not only do they stab you for your impertinence, but they leave the offending stabby bit behind! And unlike a bee, these adorable little balls of pain don’t die when they lose their quills, which come out on contact with something that might try to eat it. Also, porcupines do not swarm en masse like angry bees. Can you imagine the sheer horror of being mutilated by a score of ravening porkies, turned into a literal human pin cushion? Yeowh! The very thought sends a chill down our spine.
Just picture some scenario like the one in Animal Farm. All the forest animals get together to change things around, but negotiations decidedly do not go as planned. It’s time for war! So, some enterprising individuals (probably those crafty squirrels) strap multiple porcupines to a stick by their tails. We have two words for such an occurrence. Epic Flail! With such might and main wielded in the interest of Squirrelly Wrath (you’re welcome, Foamy), there’s no way the nut chuckers can loose.
Thankfully Folkmanis’ plush porcupine puppet, at 13 inches long, isn’t nearly as dangerous as the real thing. You can hug and squeeze and love him and call him George if you want, and he’ll never even look at you crosswise, and all the world will be better for it.
