The elven tongue agrees (generally) on a name that roughly translates to "Cherub Shield". They are often depicted on cradles, though this is an obscure fact because there are so few elven children.

Lizardfolk believe that the world resides on the back of a great "Rollum", and that each segment of its body is a previous era of existence. They say that at the end of our time, we will continue on preserved on its back as it once more continues to slowly lengthen into a vast cosmic millipede. Oddly, they want to eat it.

The amount of laments revolving around trilobites migrating onto land to live in the sun is greater than the amount of civilized races who live in the ocean, and each holds a reverence for the missing creature in its culture. Even the most primitive cultures have this one common feature.

Myconids wear living colonies of specially adapted underdark variants as jewelry.

Some will call them “rolly pollies”.
Some will call them “pill bugs”
Some call them “wood lice”
Some will call them “doodle bugs”
And some will call them “potato bugs”

All this shows is why each and every species needs an official scientific nomenclature to reduce confusion when it matters. Let the many races call it what they may, the zoological texts will record it as: “Armadillidium vulgare”.

This bally polly wooden whatever bug is an hoax created by humans, in order to create an easy subject to talk about with our women, and then slowly but surely seduce them. It does not exist, otherwise we would have a single common name to call it.

They're called Slaters cause they look like they're made out of roof slates.

We normally have it with custard in the UK because our parents were shitty feminists who never learned to cook because that's oppressive, so when they realized they either had to get a job or learn to cook, they decided neither and just made shit meals for us to subsist off of. And with desserts especially she had no sense of timing whatsoever, and left it in there until it was burnt as fuck. Thus, custard is necessary

"Sandwich" is the Class of food, being composed of all those terrestrial meals assembled from any combination of meats, vegetables, cheeses and condiments contained within or between a bread. The largest Orders of Sandwichia are the True Sandwiches (Slicedbreada), the Submarine Sandwiches (Longbreada), and the Flat Sandwiches (Flatbreada), which includes the families quesadillius, paninia, and cubana, as well as the sub-order Burritia (Rolled Flat Sandwiches). Some debate remains over the proper placement of the family Pocketia (Pita Sandwiches) within the Class. Some argue (Anons, et al) that it should be considered a group of Fused Flat Sandwiches, while others contend evolutionary evidence places them in an entirely separate class, Dumplingia.
