Queen Victoria's mole destroyer

And now, a cow with moose antlers on a phone pole.

Also, the Year Zero, bat bombs, the Boston Molasses Disaster, Queen Victoria's official rat-catcher and mole destroyer, and the evil reptilian kitten-eater from another planet. And much, much more, in Wikipedia's Unusual Articles.

meaning: shadow, secret, negative

陰茎 == inkei == (noun) penis
陰武者 == kagemusha == (noun) shadow warrior (the title of a film by Kurosawa Akira), wire puller

Left radical is 'hill'. The right radical is an obsolete character meaning 'obscure/secret/shadow'. Henshall suggests remembering it as a combination of 'now' (今) and 'meet' (会), and as a mnemonic: 'Now meet in secret in shadow of hill.'
