I'm confused by the measurements in this entry. They can grow up to a unanit in length, fine. If you take the Earth conversion (based on comments in Talk:Chesix System Of Measures, then 20 nanits of mouth-opening length is roughly 6.5 feet, compared to the Mutes largest body length of 10.5 feet. I'm having conceptual problems envisioning this (the closest I can come up with is a python chomping down on a deer, but even that would be a mouth of 3 feet tops). Or, I am just trying to apply too much Earth knowledge to this? Is there a visual equivalent (either realisitically or fantastically)? --Morbus Iff 12:08, 9 Jan 2005 (EST)
Think of an Aligator head on a tiger's body with three legs (two front and 1 back) without a tail. I was trying to figure out how wide a mouth like that could open and figured that it could get it's mouth completely around a large aelfant's leg. The measurment conversions still get me. If you think it is too big then I'll scale it down some. --Dr. H. L. Ackroyd 16:06, 9 Jan 2005 (EST)
The following exchange was integral to this Encyclopedia Entry.

You dibbed four minutes early! You must be penalized. Your penalty, which is randomly made up each turn based on whatever drunken concept of "integration" I can think of in two minutes: choose one scholar, besides yourself, who played last turn. That scholar will write one sentence for you, and you must use that sentence in your entry, somewhere. Cop-outs ("and the mystic and mysterious message of EGGPLANT was scrawled on his foot") are frowned upon. Fun!

Darn! I didn't look to see the timestamp of the sig, I just glanced at my clock (which was obviously a few minutes early) then headed to straight to bed. I'll nominate Dr. Crank as my "punisher" for this round. And thanks a whole lot. I mean it. really.

Indeed, having a Mute Chukarandos chewing on your ankle is rather worse than getting divorced and finding out that your future ex-wife had genital warts after all, but only just barely. Punishment contribution from Doctor Phineas Crank

Nothing like taking it easy on a fellow is there? Thanks, Doc. Glad to hear the warts are clearing up.
13:26, 16 Dec 2004 (EST) Doctor Phineas Crank:
Well, it was supposed to be a punishment, after all. The sentence, that is. The warts are just the gift that keeps on giving!
19:08, 16 Dec 2004 (EST) Dr. H. L. Ackroyd:
I'm curious, having been sentenced, do I now get an appeal?
16:02, 17 Dec 2004 (EST) John Cowan:
Of course you do. Your appeal is denied.
