Really?-) I understand that the actual meaning of the word includes the word urine.

Haha, maybe you're right Daniel, I saw this description on Google: "Skunk is a cat-sized American mammal of the weasel family, with distinctive black-and-white-striped fur. When threatened it squirts a fine spray of foul-smelling irritant liquid from its anal glands toward its attacker."

I'm having weird flash backs to old camping horror stories that involve a four year old girl... though the four year old girl would prolly say something that is closer to "Hello kitty"

You know the sort of incident I am talking about.
