A Stacked HealthWatch Special Report: Barkings- Are they limited to the shins?

stethoscope

Nemo asked me this question as we were transporting one of the Library’s medieval torture devices- in this case, the Barking Maiden (also known as the Library’s mini stage)- across the reading room.

Well, it turns out you can bark any part of your body (scroll down to definition 2). And, since no health report is complete without a factoid, try this on for size:  Did you know that 83% of  barkings in the United States are misdiagnosed?

Okay, I made the percentage up, but the rest is true. See, in order to qualify as a barking, some skin has to get rubbed off.
