Yesterday I got to thinking about porcupines. You know, the adorable little creatures with quills?
The thing about a porcupine is that it’s quills are released on contact. The porcupine does not set out to pick a fight, but will protect itself from assailants with the spines that are loosely attached to its body. The porcupine cannot, contrary to popular misconception, shoot its quills. But if backed into a corner, it will quill you.
The wise see the quills and back off.
