    Where I'm from, if a badger sees you it will run towards you, not away from you. They're mean as fuck.

    The only other dangerous creatures we had there were rattlesnakes and black widow spiders. Both were rare, thankfully.

    I guess our badgers are slightly more intelligent and slightly less ferocious.

    I forgot about the Canada goose. We have those savage bastards. Not sure who'd win in a fight between a Canada goose and a badger, but it's possible that's what actually killed the dinosaurs.

    Sasquatch and Yeti may be synonyms. Both are "hairy big ape-man" with white fur / polar bear color fur.

    Bigfoot has either black or brown fur.
    I'm pretty sure Bigfoot is associated with the Appalachian mountain area, as they guy who said "I'm gonna go make some fake Bigfoot videos" at a diner just prior to the "discovery" of Bigfoot captured on VHS was in Appalachia at the time.

    Never heard that one, before.

    I thought Sasquatch and Bigfoot were synonyms for the North American ape man, with Yeti referring to the Himalayas.

    I'd never heard of the wood booger either, found it funny when glancing at the Wikipedia page. I guess it comes from wood man and booger man.

    Same. Think Abominable Snowman is synonymous with Yeti, but Sasquatch = Bigfoot.

    Maybe I got it mixed up. I'm not the best a cryptozoology, but I know the word cryptozoology, so that's something, I guess.

    "looks like"

    That American badger does look rather nasty, I must say. But I wouldn't be going for tea in a Euro badger's burrow. They don't look so cute when they're snarling at your dog.

    I had heard Abominable Snowman before, but I didn't know it meant Yeti until it came up on this season of Celebrity Jeopardy. Andy Richter knew it!

    On Rigel 4 it's called a Mugato.

    I'm not too familiar with Yetis tbh. I feel much more confident about Bigfoot lore. Mostly thanks to reruns of Harry and the Hendersons.

    Why is "pear-shaped" like... bad?

    What's bad about the shape of pears?

    I think the phrase refers to something metaphorically changing from a sphere to a pear shape, as though it's not supposed to be pear shaped.

    We also have another term that means to go bad... "it's all gone tits up". Presumably that refers to the idea of a woman slipping over so her breasts briefly rise up before the inevitable fall. That's the only reason I can think that phrase makes any sense. It's a great phrase though.

    Pretty sure tits up means dead, laid on your back, supine in a coffin.

    That makes sense from a language pov but we use the term to describe chaos, not death.
