The words for "yum, pumpkin" in porcupinese sound a lot like "yum, pumpkin" in English.

Good boy, Teddy.

Teddy reminds me of my fuzzy little black and white dog who also loved pumpkin* but was not so articulate about it.

* canned pumpkin**
** no, he didn't open the can himself

How does a pet porcupine work? You can't exactly manhandle the thing like you can with a dog or cat. Are they bred for non-sharp quills?

I think you placate your porcupine overlord with pumpkins. While he screams incomprehensibly (but very cutely) at you. And that's it.

(edit. so NOT a turtle)

I was served porcupine once, on a visit to Cameroon. I missed out as I had loaded up on snake from the previous plate and didn't realise what was coming next. Just saying, this may be cute, but she could be fattening him up for the oven.

I would have sworn they were a only in North America, but it turns out that they are native to most of the continents, including Africa. Now I'm curious if I've eaten porcupine without knowing it in some roadside place.

Indeed, they're gettin eaten all over. I got told that porcupine was the course after the mouse deer at one of those hard drinkin formal dinners way up in the north of Vietnam. But until they said so, I'd been pretty sure both dishes were pork.

(Hmm. Has anyway seen a turtle? Possibly also eating pumpkin? Maybe getting fed by someone with a funny voice?)

That has left me utterly blissed out. I feel suspiciously vulnerable to warm happy thoughts right now. What kind of propaganda is this?

I love that porcupines sound like european cartoons where none of the characters speak any real language.

The noises are cute, but I wonder if it's anything like cats, who rarely meow at each other but definitely have learned to meow at humans. Also, porcupines are at the bottom of my list of animals eligible for domestication.

I WANT TO HUG A PORCUPINE! THIS IS A TERRIBLE IDEA!

The post's title had me expecting more Lovecraftian-themed content, but I'm okay with how things turned out.

Apparently Teddy Bear is the voice of the hedgehog in The Hobbit.

I do love Teddy and its absurd noises. I've always liked porcupines, because, like skunks, they know that they don't have to worry much about anything, and so they just kind of meander around not giving a fuck.

Also a tortoise, for completionists.

Here's mine.
