      Hackles are the erectile hairs on a dog's back. So my OED, anyway. And yes,
      my hackles are raised by your proposal, but leaving that aside, even if one
      were to agree with you, it only defers the problem a bit. Why a "gospel" (in
      the sense of a chronological account of Jesus' "ministry" and death) in the
      first place?
