I think I found a bofero in episode 235:
"Strweth?" said Fleming, trying to sound casual.

Is Fleming saying "strewth"?

Strewth! Boferos abound! Or 'abnoud', as the case may be :)

Is fixed. Thanks!

An 'abnoud', or course, is a small burrowing animal indigenous to the arid regions of
Australia's Northern Territory. Noted for their tough sandpaper-like fur and stout muscular
foreclaws, they were briefly sought after by manufacturers of woodworking tools during the
earlly years of the 19th Century...

:lol:
Of course; the pelts were used to make Abnero (tm) pads, which were used put the final polish on the woodworking tools. The natural oils and the abrasive qualities of the pelts both protected the tools and resulted in extremely low-resistance cutting edges. However, the intense evolutionary pressure from massive over-hunting of the animals with the thickest fur caused them to rapidly evolve into a new species: abnoud impilus. Hence the brief existance of Abnero Polishing, Ltd.
