Who you callin' a rat?

I just found a reference to hedgehogs in Macbeth.  Thanks a whole lot, Shakespeare.  Now Timmy won't shut up about it.

"Thrice, and once the hedgepig whined." 4.1.2

How do you like that, Dad?  Apparently even the witches knew that Tobe ain't no rat.  

That being said, I am still slightly nervous about reading The Scottish Play so close to Halloween.  This is what happens to you when your mother has spent years performing and judging Shakespeare.  You grow up with theatre superstition and you're not allowed to say "The M-word".

Because this is what happens if you do
