Every Rose has its Thorn

Aculeate [ê-‘kyu-lee-yêt]

Definition: Having a stinger, like a bee or wasp, or sharp prickles, like a rose or thistle.

If you know someone with a prickly personality, you will find today’s word handy, “Otto Mattick has aculeate tongue capable of inflicting considerable mental pain if roiled.” You could also call Otto’s barbed words ‘aculeate.’
