Oddly, the Spellchecker Doesn't Like It

Tyler Cowen at Marginal Revolution pointed me to this story of a spineless hedgehog, which of course caught my eye for the wrong reason.

Spud was found wandering in a garden and taken to Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Aylesbury, Bucks, last August. Experts are baffled by his condition, which has caused his skin to dry and his spines to fall out. The hospital is asking practitioners of alternative medicine to suggest possible remedies.
