A while ago, someone raised the issue of Robotnik calling Sonic a rodent,
which Sonic is not.

In my dictionary, a hedgehog is (incorrectly) defined as a porcupine --
and porcupines *are* rodents.

Did anyone notice that Robotnik, in one of the Archie comics, says he had
one of Sonic's quills? But hedgehogs don't have porcupine quills.

Obviously, someone cut Biology class a few times too many (g). Or maybe
the whole thing is just misconception about what hedgehogs (and other
animals) are. For that matter, I know people who think rabbits are
rodents, and they are not. (Can you say Lagomorpha? I knew you could.)
