Geoffrey: not his real name

Hooting with laughter since the weekend when there came on the radio an item on the excellent time-keeping skills of hedgehogs. The devil of it is I can’t find it to give you a link. If you know and could point me in its direction, please do @MBMaterials

What tickled me was the interviewee, an earnest and humane individual who was creeping around in the dark with the reporter to demonstrate the regular habits of the hedgehog, when asked what he called the prickly leedle fellow, whispered “Geoffrey: it’s not his real name”.
