wuzzle means to mix

Does this phrase strike a memory in you?

“A baloo is a bear, to wuzzle means to mix, a yonker is a young man”

If it does, you probably had the majority of your schooling in the US during the 80s. It came from the standardized tests we took every year. It was part of a memory test and this was always the example they’d use. I still remember it.

So speaking of wuzzle (not those wuzzles, though it does make sense, no?), ever wondered what you’d call the offspring of a zebra and a donkey?

You get a zeedonk. Or you can call it a zebrass, zebronkey, zonkey, zebadonk, zenkey, zebrinny, or deebra.

These are not to be confused with a zony or a zorse, and of course would never be confused with a beefalo or a yackalo for they smell quite differently and have horns.

The most popular wuzzled animal you’re probably familiar with is the mule. But there’s all kinds of wuzzled up animals like ligers, tigons, and grolar bears (oh my!).

Oh, and a wolphin is not a wolf and a dolphin. It’s a false killer whale and a dolphin for goodness sake.

UPDATE: Whoa! Today I actually saw a Panda Dog! Sorta.

    God bless the internet. I Googled “A baloo is a bear…” to see if anyone else had that burned in to their memory. I’m 36, and hadn’t thought of this since like 8th grade. Then my kids were watching “Jungle Book” and Baloo the bear came on. It all flooded back at that point. Makes me wonder if there were any other motives to these standardized tests!
