Up the creek without a platypus

Disclaimer: Despite this blog's title, I regret to inform that there will be very little to no talk here of any furry, semi-aquatic mammals sporting funky, rubbery snouts. However, because I don't want to gain fame through false advertising, I WILL share one interesting tidbit about the duckbill: the male platypus harbors a poison-secreting gland in his heel. I don't know if this means he's got hemlock in his sock or if he is fucking Achilles' girlfriend, but either way, he's definitely got something I don't.
