Why do they call them goosebumps?


1 Answer

Goosebumps are tiny elevations of the skin that resemble the skin of poultry after the feathers have been plucked. Therefore we could as well call them "turkeybumps" or "duckbumps." These bumps are caused by a contraction of miniature muscles that are attached to each hair.
