GERMANY: A wolverine?

Daryl DeBell compared Germany with a wolverine. Cameron Sawyer objects: "The wolverine is a ferocious, fearless little creature, the mascot of my alma mater U. of Michigan. Did Daryl really mean to disparage Germany with his wolverine characterization, as Christopher took it?" RH: We Californians do not know what a wolverine is. It lives in nasty climates like that of Michigan. Gulo luscus belongs to the Mormon family, since it lives with two or three females. Zoologically it is really a weasel, so, when speaking of it, Daryl may have been thinking of the end of Hitler and his regime: Pop goes the weasel.
