The distinctive sound made by a nee action or floating swivel blade vegetable peeler when peeling carrots. This type of manual peeler has a double-sided interior-edged hemi-curved blade, mounted on a limited-radius swivel-action shaft. The shaft end is mounted in a handle made of metal or plastic, which also provides the stops that limit the swiveling radius of the blade. This peeler mechanism is particularly effective for long-shaped vegetables and fruits such as carrots and cucumbers.
Can I help you in the kitchen? Get out the shika shika from the drawer to the left of the stove, and peel some carrots for the stew and salad, if you like.

nickname for any insect with at least 10 legs that goes skittering across your floor or walls. Bonus points if it makes someone cringe or go "Eek!"
