    Here’s a sample link for traditional weasel associations: http://ww2.netnitco.net/users/legend01/weasel.htm – but I expect there are many more.

    As scared as a weasel? What does that mean? Weasels are notorious for attacking larger animals – not scared of much!

    As you can tell from the single L in weaseling, that’s US English more than native English.
