Forum Home / News Discussion / The Wonderful World Of Uninteresting Animals #4: The Hedgehog

[This topic is LOCKED]

Posted: 5 Jun 19 18:32

Extract from Story:
To the uninitiated, the British hedgehog seems like an interesting sort of creature. Its body covered in spines, its pointed nose sniffing around for something to eat, its beady eyes searching around in the darkness, are enough to give the unwary traveller a shock when he or she encounters it - a shock they might never forget. In truth, however, the hedgehog is about as uninteresting as animals.....

Dear Spoafe,

I should like to enter a plea for the hedgehog, or hotchiwitch, as we dub him in our Romani tongue, notwithstanding the derogatory way in which he is delineated in this article which has featured in your erstwhile blameless journal.

We travelling Romani should be ill-starred indeed were it not for the noble hotchiwitch, who is indeed a staple in our diet, especially baked as we like within a clay.

As the infamous Romany Rye wrote:

Kushti it was, and savvy we were, both Rom and Gawjie, to smell the baking hotchiwitch in his clay coat, and to smoke, and to see the chi shugra capering by the fire, as the May evening sunlight dappled the gaily-hued Vardo.

Yours faithfully,

Old Django

Dear Spffaffe,

with reference to the previous diatribe, it has been drawn to mine attention that another of your published articles exists, wherein a picture of the hotchiwitch is displayed above an article describing a Three-toed Sloth.

I can only demur at this insult. I have never encountered a Three-toed Sloth on my travels; none have been discerned in the New Forest, nor at the Appleby Horse Fair.

Hence my need to use your Gawjie word for him, since we have none.

My Daj asked me to write this, as he cannot be bothered any more.

Yours faithfully,

Young Django
