I Can’t Make Spottle From Jaw

Spottle from Jaw 600x307.jpg

The Martian rat, the skelk, has teeth that continuously regrow if they are lost. The detritus of these teeth, which can often be found in skelk burrows or nests, is called spottle. When someone says they ‘can’t make spottle from jaw’ it means they can’t discern between the jaw and the spottle, or can’t make any sense of what they are referring to.
