necrovore v Necrovore

Lots of things banging around in my head: a conversation with a friend about the diets of cats and dogs; reading a book that mentions the niche dung beetles fill; eating something new and delicious for lunch; wondering if there are any aliens for whom food is not an aesthetic experience. All this came together, helped by jet-lag, as the thought: obligate coprovore.

And more fun – I googled coprovore to check the spelling.  It asked “Did you mean: necrovore”  First thought: “ugh”. Second thought: “err, yes, of course I am”.  So I clicked to find out more – it’s a black/death metal band.
