What's the opposite of Episcopal Spine?

Saw this question on somebody's blog. And I think I have the term.

The opposite of "Episcopal Spine" is "Episcopal Exoskeleton."

Think about it. Only a true invertebrate needs an exoskeleton. In addition, once you take away the skeleton, which is on the surface level only, the creature collapses into a quivering state of boneless-chicken-hood.

So, there's your answer, faithful readers. When a bishop misses the opportunity to demonstrate some spine, just chalk it up to Episcopal Exoskeleton.
