As some of you may know, yesterday, I was accosted by a comment from an annoyed reader who, among other things, suggested than I might possibly end up “smelling like a skink.” I immediately wondered what exactly was a skink (besides an obvious typo)? Well, after a little zoological research, I discovered that a skink is, in fact, a real animal. It’s the name for a family of lizards, one of the most diverse families of lizards, according to Wikipedia. Try as I might, however, I was unable to locate any information about any foul-smelling odors they might happen to emit. Oh well. I guess just discovering that it’s actually a real thing is enough. See, you really do learn something new every day.
