Could this be where the word "lickspittle" comes from?

prickly city

Probably not, as it means a "toady", a fawning underling.

For reasons that must be obscure, I woke up this morning with that word on my mind, and so I thought I might try to work it into my discussion of the comics today.

Didn't work.

As I said . . .

Pretty obscure.

Nothing more than an excuse to type the word "lickspittle" here.

Reason enough, by the standards of this website.
