    My students are always curious as to the source of that expression. Their own idiom is far more logical. I won’t bore you with the explanation, that’s what Google’s for.

    Those do look like “the fretful porpentine”, not hedgehogs. If Mr Parisi is American—they don’t have hedgehogs, so yeah I’d go with porcupines.

    I thought sharks and hedgehogs (though I’ve never seen the latter). Like my cockatoo, I prefer not to have any fall on me.

    They are. Hedgehog quills arc forward over the face.

    You know what’s worse than raining cats and dogs?

    Hailing taxicabs and buses.
