hedgehog - Sing the hedgehog song


hedgehog verses
hedgehog <fraction> {from|of} <vessel>


The hedgehog command lets you sing the hedgehog song in a way that makes people around you dance. This can be quite distracting for someone who is trying to chop your friends' heads off, for example.

You need to be a bit tipsy to successfully sing the hedgehog song. To keep drinking while singing, you can give the hedgehog a drink argument, see examples below.

To see how many verses you know, type "hedgehog verses".

The spell "Wee Flaudia's Fluffy Ear Muffs" protects against the effects of the song.

To stop singing, type "stop spell", just as you would with a normal spell.

Note that singing the hedgehog song is illegal in several places, e.g. Ankh-Morpork.


> hedgehog 1/100 of black bottle
You draw a deep breath.
You sing:
Bestiality sure is a fun thing to do
But I have to say this as a warning to you:
With almost all animals, you can have a ball
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.
You wheeze.
