Joe, User of All Epithets Usable, did you do a find-and-replace offline to get all those epithets in?

To me "varmint" (= vermin) suggests a harmful animal that should be killed at any opportunity. Most of us don't believe in that idea any more (except for roaches and rats).

A groundhog is a marmot that doesn't live in the mountains. Common in eastern North America. Pudgy, furry, not well adapted to a world that includes cars.

This has been your irregularly scheduled natural-history break.
