goad

I called the creature a BEARGER, a hybrid of a polar bear & tiger.
It’s not anatomically correct-but it was a quick sketch.

Quote:
In one breath, the singer would playfully goad the audience, “You’re quiet, New York, I’m here to wake you up.”
— Dan Aquilante, “‘Rot’ the house: Johnny still an easy PiL to swallow”, New York Post

Origin:
Goad starts out in Old English as gad, “spearhead”, and takes on a more figurative meaning as “to prod as if with a spear” in the 1600s.
