    Would honestly find it rather odd to walk a penguin or panda in the park.

    Strange expression, since a petard isn’t a hoist.

    A petard is a type of sword.

    From Wikipedia “A petard was a small bomb used to blow up gates and walls when breaching fortifications, of French origin and dating back to the sixteenth century” and "If a petard detonated prematurely, the petardier would be lifted by the explosion. In addition, the usual human response is to get away from trouble by the most direct means possible, but a straight line is rarely the safest route of departure while under fire, and this is particularly true after setting a petard. The backblast went straight back from the fortification: if the petardier also moved straight back he would be “hoist by his own petard”.

    The correct expression is “hoist with …” or “hoist by …” When you consider what a petard could do to you, if it went off at the wrong time, “hoist” is a perfectly good word — but “on” doesn’t belong.
