Just in for a short browse, but I had to log-in to respond to this one because I couldn't believe no one mentioned

serpentine: snakelike (and would you like a nice shiny red apple, Eve?), but actually more in the meaning of a slithery form rather than character.

and, then, of course, so obvious with all the bovine talk (and to quote good ol' Teddy Roosevelt): Bully! We'll have a bully good time!

Since I brought up bully, I guess I better add bullish, too...as in financial jargon, or feeling sure or solid about something.

Bearish? Opps, that's a swear word, isn't it?

I won't badger you about forgetting .... er, ... badger.

And when someone has been soundly defeated in a game of cribbage, he has been skunked.

An easy, close-in shot in basketball is a bunny.

I shall doggedly pursue more animal terms.

Release the hounds! The cat's out of the bag. Buy a pig in a poke. Cat got your tongue? My friend is hen-pecked, but he doesn't crow about it. Quit monkeying around. Quit horsing around.

Lookout! Catfight! One of them will be eating crow soon enough. The other will be the scapegoat.

Well, I've layed enough eggs, and milked this long enough.

What a ham... [and I've segued into the inevitable food thread ]

Does anyone else suspect Sparteye's getting a little squirrelly?
