After weeks in the trenches without hot water, soldiers get pretty hairy---among other things. I'm sure that was the basis for the slang.

pseudopod (pseudopodium) noun (Liter. "false foot") A temporary protrusion or retractile process of the protoplasm of a cell that serves a locomotor or food-gathering function.

This would be a good word for a cephalopod/tentacle sex story, but I've yet to see it in one.

I imagine that Libertines were described as prurient often. It goes well with beast, as in, "He was known to prowl, like a prurient beast."

prunella also prunelle - noun 1. a twilled woolen dress fabric 2. a heavy woolen fabric used for the uppers of shoes

Actually, Shakespeare wrote

"For 'tis the sport to have the enginer
Hoist with his own petard..."

Being hoist with your own petard was one of the occupational hazards of being an "enginer"---the fuses of the day being rather more than unreliable as to the speed with which they burned...

And the French word petard has another meaning, not always recorded in dictionaries: fart.

The French for 'fart' is 'pet' (comp. peter - to fart). On the road bordering Quebec in upstate NY, there was a shop specializing in items for companion animals whose owners gave it a name with a French slant without realizing that in naming their emporium "La boutique des pets," they had called it "the fart shop."

In the 1930s - see Dorothy L Sayers' Lord Peter novel 'Gaudy Night' - the provosts were responsible for students' behaviour in town, and would patrol on Friday and Saturday nights particularly, looking for students out late without a pass. By the 1950s and certainly by the 1960s, stopping students' inappropriate behaviour was beyond the provosts' capabilities.

I wouldn't describe them as high-ranking. They had to be graduates but their roles were more like that of a Master-of-Arms, or university policeman.
