Word of the day – bandicoot

bandicoot (n.) any of several large East Indian rats of the genus Nesokia

“Once, when I remarked that she looked like a disoriented bandicoot, she leapt up from the piano bench and beat me within an inch of my life with a rolled-up piano sonata by Schubert. Ophelia has no sense of humor.”
from The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
