  • Technically the anus is not the gland itself. Just felt I had to mention that.

    And "express" is also used in reference to, for example, breast milk. (Which I would hope is not going to be argued to be gross.)

  • I congratulate the article for bringing out the sinister possibilities of the word 'express'. I'll never look at it the same way again.

  • I was dubious that the anus could be considered a gland, but apparently in hyenas and dogs there is indeed an anal gland. Which sometimes requires grooming. Yuck.

  • A secretion from the anal gland of hyenas used to mark territory and to identify individuals by odor. The gooey substance is spread onto objects within the territory of the hyena by rubbing their posterior against the object they mark. African legends state that witches would ride hyenas and use a gourd full of hyena butter as fuel for the torches they carried through the night. (Wikipedia)
