Why did Knut the Polar Bear Die?

It is not yet certain, but preliminary tests indicate no change in any of Knut’s organs other than his brain. Further tests, including those for an infection, are being performed. I’ll update this post when I hear more.

    It’s just Knut, with the bonus-“e” in your title. Sorta rhymes whith “shoot”.

    No one really knows how to spell Islandic anyway. More importantly, do you pronounce the “k” or not? In Minnesota, we do.

    So Knut rhymes with “kshoot”

    Now where, exactly, would “Islandic” be spoken?
