It has proved surprisingly durable, although whifflepeke used for this purpose is of course completely unsuitable for mating. During the reign of Harandraff this had a unforseen benefit, as the male inquisitors decided that records made from whifflepeke were too embarrassing to even think about, and studiously ignored their existence. This was no surprise to anyone, as the whifflepeke reflex is deeply ingrained in even the most rational adult male. Even with today's modern writing materials, whifflepeke backups of the most important documents are still kept, and the female historians of HANDBAG preserve the old documents, reproducing them as necessary.
