Foxy Fact: Did you know that a fox's tail is called a brush?

British readers will recall Basil Brush, the puppet character on children's tv during the 60s/70s and beyond. Distinctively dressed in tweed deer stalker, waistcoat, cape and cravat, Basil had the look and accent of a gentleman fox with a nod to the character of Sherlock Holmes in his styling. His catch phrase "Boom, Boom", would ring out every time he told a joke. Basil was always very touchy about his brush being called a tail. And so we all learned that a fox tail is a BRUSH!
