Loyal Readers, I am in need of your input and advice. Ever since the visit of Mom Trish from the Katnip Lounge, Äiti has been crocheting. Now we have laughed and scorned most of what she has produced, but we are delighted with this crop of cat toys. She has been testing different yarns, and immersing these thingies in valerian. They are stinky!
a very long story) and they became an instant hit with us, even without the added valerian. And we asked you to guess what they were, and sent out some to the lucky guessers. Now, even we think calling them Stinky Sperm or something like that is perhaps a little strange so we need a name! I may set up a poll on my facebook page but also welcome your comments. Personally I like 'Punapippuri's polliwogs' as polliwog is an olde English term for tadpoles, but maybe it sounds too much like gollywog which is regarded as very offensive. In Finnish tadpole is nuijapää which is a wonderful word but somewhat hard to pronounce, hehehehe. As is siitiö which is Finnish for sperm. Giddy gametes is possible, but doesn't quite sum it up..... woolly wigglers ? Yarn tiddlers? Well, to be honest, we do not know. So, please send suggestions. As a bilingual household, we welcome Finnish and English nominations.
