THE BUNYIP is stirring his pond to try find another animal emblematic of the lugubrious Gastropod.

This followed a stirring paean to pigs from Billie of Altona. She made her point with delicious eloquence, and is welcome to cuddle up in my blog-pen anytime she likes.

The results of the hunt are disappointing. No surprise. They're all just names, and fail to enhance the awful reality which can only be described. If you have the stomach for the work.
