My Googlenope

Today, a fun quiz came across our alumni listserv: The Yankee or Dixie Quiz.

As I posted my score of 91% Dixie, I also noted that the correct answer for #20 was missing.
This is the question (and their possible answers):

20. What's that bug that rolls into a ball when you touch it? (NOTE: This is not a doodle bug (ant lion), which is the larvae of Myrmeleontidae spp.)
Roly poly
Potato bug
Sow bug

Hello, people! It's a ball-up bug! Well. Nobody else had ever heard of this, so I Googled it. NO HITS. This means that my mom and brother and I may be the only three people on the planet to use the term "ball-up bug." Even my kids call them roly-polies.
