As my mother always said as I was growing up, "Don't touch that. You don't know where it's been."

It was an April Fools day joke of jan Sonja's meaning pangolin or armadillo. It should be treated as an obsolete word, here one list of currently obsolete words.

However, if I was going to write about pangolins or armadillos, I'd be sorely tempted to use kijetesantakalu because people have seen that more than akesi pi ma seli or what have you.
