Yup, one of my 'nomenclatorial innovations' is to fondly refer to my
the butterflies as 'bugs' or even 'bugzz'. Of course I have discovered that
this freaks out those few taxonomists who are humor-impaired :-) Mission
impossible for the poets among us -- a limerick dealing with bugzz and
nomenclature :-)

A professor concerned with nomenclature
Exclaimed to his wife 'Well I'm baffled dear
Calling butterflies bugzz
is a habit that sucks
I've always preferred Lepidoptera'
