Hi, Jeffrey... I love "pig" for "buttock," and you may have noticed that I
borrowed your word for "egg" ("vov"); the Teonaht word is "dendr," but the
Teonim consider vov so evocative.  Is this permissible?  I'll put a note in
"borrowed from Dublex"; when I borrowed it I couldn't remember whom I had
borrowed it from!  :)

Thanks for Rick Harrison's list.
