mysid: (rainbow flag)
While strolling through the interwebz, I happened to stumble across a trivia page about deer. (Don't ask.) One answer seemed to be of interest to fans of Kurt Hummel on Glee.

Q: Some red deer stags do not grow antlers. What are these non-antlered deer known as?

A: Hummels. Hummels are known to grow larger than normal antlered males. It is thought this is due to their bodies not having to use resources to form the antlers. The reason the antlers do not grow on some red deer is still unknown, but it is suspected that malnutrition during their early life may cause this to occur. The male offspring of Hummels do grow antlers.


So, a hummel is a male deer with a feminine appearance. Coincidence? I think not.
