Weasel tidbit.

Something I found when doing "research" for my W Fable:
The company that makes those overprices but well-packed and oh-so-sweet-smelling baby-care products (shampoos, lotions, etc.) has the name of the genus that weasels belong to.
It's Mustela.
Weird, huh? You can look up "weasel" in the dictionary, if you want to.
I can just hear new dads using this in a store. "They're charging what for a bottle of shampoo?! Well, you know what "mustela" means, don't you? Look it up. They're weasels."
