I picked up the Turkey answer from Ally Mcbeal, but due to the ubiquitous American misspronounciation of the letter T I tried woddle, waddle, even wodle, wadle, wuddle and wudle and then gave up. PRONOUNCE YOUR Ts :)

I have two pet rabbits, and I have never heard of a warren. Burrow, den, you name it, but never warren. Then again, perhaps it's because the answer to "rabbits' home" for my two bunnies is "my house."

I do too. 'Waste' was the first word I thought of and then couldn't think of another. I think whack is a USAmerican usage more than mafia in Europe.

AARGH!!! I KNEW wattle but spelled it as waddle, and kept trying to change the vowel around. Maybe accept "waddle"?

Waddles are for ducks! We can't just go around interchanging poultry like that. It would lead to total anarchy.
