I'm sorry, but it's the only word that comes to mind with that.

Cheers.

Jaffas were good here for rolling down the aisles at the movies back in the old days before carpet was used over the timber floors.

Cheers.

Dracula — Alucard
Hellsing Ultimate, still known simply as Hellsing in Japan, is an original video animation (OVA) anime series animated by animation studios Satelight (OVAs I–IV), Madhouse (OVAs V–VII) and Graphinica (OVAs VIII–X), and produced by Geneon. The first 50-minute episode was released on Region 2 DVD in Japan on February 10, 2006. The ending of each episode uses various pieces of instrumental music composed by Hayato Matsuo and performed by the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra up through OVA V. OVAs VI and VII feature vocal closing themes by Japanese rock group Suilen, titled "Magnolia" and "Shinto-Shite", respectively.

Musseled - not in the scrabble dictionary, but did you mean "Muscled", which would make a lot of sense, and a very easy mistake to make.

Pretty obscure, but we members of the Royal Signals refer to Mercury on our cap badge as Jimmy. Why is not really known, https://www.royalsignalsmuseum.co.uk/cap-badge-history/

"spewing" is 1 step (or maybe 2) above "grumpy" down here. ;-)

Cheers.

First thought about the word “Dexter”.

By day, mild-mannered Dexter is a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami police. But at night, he is a serial killer who only targets other murderers

Wasn't that mis-named, sinister is the word for left, where dexter is for right.

PushMePullYou - I assume you meant the weird animal described by Hugh Lofting in his Dr.Dolittle books, in which case he (normally) spells it "Pushmi-Pullyu". A really fun creation being a "gazelle/unicorn cross" with two heads (one of each) at opposite ends of its body. (This raises many questions today, and indeed did when I read the books many years ago. I will allow the dear reader to invent their own set of questions, but as a hint I was a you boy child, with an even younger brother in nappies who would hide behind curtains when he went in "smell generation mode"....)

A "Pushmepullyou" is also an oven tool. It's to push or pull oven racks while they are hot. At one time I made these and sold them at Renaissance Faires and craft shows.
