    Like many other baby animals born to the same mama, a group of kittens is commonly called a "litter." They can also be called a "kindle," and this term refers specifically to kittens rather than any random group of baby animals. In Old English, "kindling" was a term used for birthing, and this is most likely where the noun originated from. Another seldom-used term for a group of kittens is an "intrigue."

    While kittens are certainly curious and intriguing creatures, the term more likely became associated with them back when "entanglement" was an accepted synonym for the word. A rowdy group of kittens can definitely be described as an entanglement of fuzzy little bodies.

    I posted this one in here a long time ago. We've apparently run out of little known facts.

    My mother would make friend chicken about twice a month almost always on a Sunday. Usually had homemade biscuits from maw maw and dew berry jelly to go with it. Damn and to think I thought I was poor back then.

    I love home cooked fried chicken but I hardly ever cook it because it's a mess to only cook enough for myself. Usually when I want some I go to Popeyes or get the Krispy Krunchy kind from a convenience store.

    F that my mom taught my wife and she does a damn good imitation . Only thing is she only makes it on special days. And maw maws biscuits are lost to history. Woman could make 3 dozen biscuits and everyone was identical to the next. That is lost art.
