If I'm not mistaken, most of the new words revealed at that qep'a' were
from the wish list poll that qurgh put together.
Okrand/Maltz were sent groups of words/subjects we wanted to discuss.
So everything we got all fit into neat categories, because that's how we
requested them.

Separate from that, my children requested words for "owl" and "bunny".
My son was told the word {cheS} before anyone else.

Marc then chose to reveal the word to everyone else during the qep'a' along
with the other new words.

So there is a chance that the pun has nothing to do with the rest of the
words on the "Body Functions and Parts" page.
There is also a chance that {cheS} breed like rabbits.

>Clearly a not-so-subtle hint for us to discover the pun.   I assumed it
was a name; but type “rabbit  ches” into your browser’s Search window and
see for yourselves …

When I google "rabbit cheS", I get hits for Alice in Wonderland inspired
makeup due to "Cheshire Cat" and "White Rabbit".

This would not be the first Alice in Wonderland related pun.
