I think the sophisticated term for the four things he walks on is "Faux pas".

Some more interesting "facts" about the Rock Island's heavy grass right-of-way stabilization program have recently sprouted.
As we have previously learned, young fox kits developed severe skin allergies from eating the roots of tough "tie grass".
It would seem that another long term effect was permanently bloodshot eyes.
These poor tormented creatures would stare angrily at their former trackside homeland for hours on end.
This behavior was known as "the raw kit's red glare".
An unauthorized late night "field observation trip" by Dr. Jose Kenucee, the head of Rock Island's veterinary science division (OK, maybe their organization was a bit top heavy) accompanied by his young, often rude yet attractive, lab assistant Dawn Surlylite, prompted a late night dissertation of his findings to a local shotgun-toting farmer who was investigating a strange, steamed up vehicle on his property.
The farmer observed, as he gazed into the doctor's vehicle "ain't science wonderful?"
 
I'll let you know if anything else crops up.
